Change to a new number altogether, then no. To change to your previous provider number, then you have to keep your previous provider account active until your old number port over. It only took three days for my home number to port over.

ABSOLUTELY... just go to the webpage provided for users and go to your account. Follow the directions there for changing your phone number. If your number is still available, that is, if you haven't disconnected that number from your traditional service or it hasn't been reassigned, it is still available to be transferred. The transfer process can take up to a week but is usually faster.
