Usually yes. 


Just sign up to the new Mobile account and at some point in the process it will ask if you are porting an existing number.

Re: Telstra number transfer

Hey Ferg. You'll just need to ensure your phone is still active with Telstra - don't cancel it before you port it - and it will have to be in your name. As Peter has pointed out, you'll be able to elect to keep/ port your existing number during the sign up process.
