To port his number to Verizon Wireless he would need his account number and pin code/password he has with his current carrier and it would be handled by Verizon Wireless. Once the port has gone through, his line will disconnect by itself from his current carrier.
Thank you to the community member for assisting JodinRich! We would love for your husband to join-in. He can check if his number can be ported in by visiting http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/support/switch-to-verizon . He may visit vzw.com/lnp to start service or call 877-777-5759 to start the service.
