Can you swap your contract over to a different number? ?

Basically I’ve just started a new contract (sim only) and I don’t want my number anymore. If I order a sim, can I transfer the contract over to a new number on the same network etc etc. 

Thank you

    Sure. The new SIM will usually come with a different number anyway. If you don’t wish to keep your old phone number you simply don’t ask your carrier to transfer it to your new SIM. 

    Eventually your old number will be made available to new customers but it’s usually after at least six months of total inactivity and often far longer.

    Most cell companies will allow you to change numbers for free (they may charge if you want a specific number) with no need to get a different sim. I know with Sprint, you can just go to the website and change your number.
