My girlfriend and I are on a family plan for two T-mobile phones. The account is in my name. I'm transferring my number to Sprint (to use the 600) and she's transferring her number to Verizon.

Here's the question: since both phones are currently in my name on the family plan, do I need to be the one to create a new account for her phone number transfer to Verizon? Or can we spin the number off to an account in her name?

I am sure everyone in a family plan that wants to port their number to a different carrier has this same problem if they're not going to another family plan.
