Changing your Ultra Mobile number is usually free, but sometimes there’s a fee.
There are a lot of reason to why someone might want to change their Ultra Mobile phone number.
For instance, you might have gotten a different area code than what you wanted. This can happen if you have provided a zip code — when you activated your service– that is not within the area code of your choosing.
Another reason is that you might be getting calls from people you don’t know as a result of having a recycled phone number. I am not 100% sure that Ultra Mobile uses recycled numbers, but I Know for a fact that Cricket does.
Follow the Steps to Change Ultra Mobile Number
According to Ultra Mobile, the only way to change a number is by calling customer support. Currently, an online option is not available. This is because you have to speak with an agent to verify your account.
Start by calling the number above and then select the option to speak with an agent. Once you are connected and the agent has verified your information, inform the representative that you wish to change your Ultra Mobile number.
You will be given the option to select a new number from a set of generated numbers.
2. Changing your area code
If you also wish to change your area code let the customer service agent know that that’s what you want. The agent will ask for your zip code. The zip code you provide will determine your area code.For example, if you wanted a Los Angeles area code which is 323, you would provide the agent with a zip code that is within the 323 area code which is a 90001 zip code.
For example, if you wanted a Los Angeles area code which is 323, you would provide the agent with a zip code that is within the 323 area code which is a 90001 zip code. A 93256 area code will generate a 559 area code and so on.
Also, you can’t just change your area code and still keep the same number. Your phone number will change if you change your area code, so just keep that in mind.
3. Changing a ported number
Typically, there is no fee for changing your Ultra Mobile number; however, there is a fee if your number was ported or transferred from another service provider. The fee is around $30.
How You Can change Ultra Mobile Number For Free
1. Recycled phone number
Have you been getting calls from people you don’t know? Companies will always claim that they don’t use recycled cell phone numbers. Why? Because no one wants to get random text messages and calls from collection agencies claiming that you owe them money.
That is why Ultra Mobile (and other prepaid providers ) is willing to change your number for free. You just have to tell them that you are getting calls from random people and they won’t charge you a dime.
Leave me a message if you think Ultra Mobile uses recycled cell phone numbers. I’m curious to know because I don’t know for sure.
2. First-time changing numbers
Additionally, Ultra Mobile will not charge you a fee if it’s your first time changing your phone number. However, there will be a fee if you change your number frequently.
Sometimes it just depends on who you’re speaking with, and you can probably get that fee waived if you have a good enough reason.
