Randy :

Hi,
My name is Randy.
I will assist you with your question today.

Randy :

Yes, you can transfer the number, it is called porting the number.

Randy :

You will need to keep the current account active until the port is completed by tracphone.

JACUSTOMER-43jr8eo1- :

Tried using the internet to do it last night and it just quit. Should I be using the tracfone site to do it or does Safelink have some restrictions or its own site? No one answering the phone at Safelink

Randy :

Yes, use the Tracphone site,
