    Porting Over A Friend's Iphone 6 to Straight Talk

    OK, please bear with me on this...My friend has an iPhone6...he wants to keep the phone, but wants to switch over to Straight Talk. I'm going over to his house next week to walk him thru this....What will I need to prepare for this?
    Remember, he wants to keep his phone and his number. Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide!

    Here are a few questions that you might need to ask him. Is the phone fully paid off? What tower do you want to run on? Is the phone number still active?

    Porting the number is very simple. You just need to know the account information from his old provider.

    Make sure the phone is unlocked. Then he should have the option for either ATT or Verizon service on ST, whichever is better for the area.
    iPhone X is my current primary phone. I have older model iPhones and Moto phones available on other lines. Currently prepaid, though would consider postpaid on right plan.

    Why ST? There might be better options. And when it comes to CS ST is no fun.
