Transfer Handset & contract balance

CoryC

Somebody lost their job & can no longer afford their contracted mobile service. They want to transfer ownership of their handset & the balance of their contract to another person.

Is this possible? Do they keep their old Ph number or does that go with the contract?

From what I understand everything including the number would be transferred to the new owner. Have a look at the link below for more information.

You can complete a change of ownership, that's not a problem but the person taking on the contract will receive the phone number and need to pass a credit cheque. I don't believe you can transfer the balance outstanding on the account but the receiving person can easily pay the old bill so no real need for that anyway

Yep as I said the other day when 3 of us answered the same question, that’s what I call service! Smiley Happy
