    Hey everyone! I am planning on porting over my number from a family plan over at verizon to att for the new iPhone but since I am usually away at school, it will be easier for me to give my school address as my billing address. However my mobile number is from a different area code than my billing address. Will I be allowed to port over my number. Is it maybe possible to give a billing address and service address so I still receive my bills at school and can my home address to say I still live in the area code of my mobile number? Thanks!

    I'm not sure, I can't see why not.

    With that said, why not use google voice, that way you can pick the area code you want.

    Yes when I upgraded to the Iphone 3GS last year my area code was different from my billing area code. I did this in the Best Buy store so you shouldn't have a problem. When I added my husband he had a 615, but we changed to the same area code I have which is again different from my billing area code...

    I've had the same number since I've lived in upstate NY when I was in high school. I've switched carriers and moved to different cities along the east coast multiple times since then. They do not care what number you have.

    The area code that your phone number says has nothing to do with anything. It is just your phone number, that is all. Taxes and everything else are based on your billing address.

    Taxes are related to your billing address, not your area code.

    I've had my DC number for the last 7 years, three of which were spent in Seattle. The only reason they'll care is if you're roaming excessively, then they'll terminate. Being at school shouldn't be a problem.
