Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!
Having the old phone number on the iPhone5 will not do anything to your current number and phone.
If the phone has been removed from your plan then your son can activate it on his plan without any issues. The easiest way to complete the steps is to call your cell phone provider and they will ask for a couple of numbers off the phone but they can set it up while you are on the phone with them.
