Get back cell Phone number
« on: September 28, 2023, 09:14:26 PM »
To make a long story short, my account i had with sprint for ten years was shut down and my number is gone with it, anyway for me to retrieve it from somewhere ?
Sprint/tmobile say they dont have it anymore.
how can i check if anyone has it yet ? and if not any way for me to get it ?

I donít know the answer to your question but it might depend on how long itís been since the account was closed and the number lost.

Numbers are owned by a carrier/company, try looking up whether your previous carrier still owns the number (they likely do)

Would you share the reason your account was terminated?

NP. I had the Sprint free and clear plan from the good old days, it was a spare phone they wanted me to upgrade to 4g with a smart phone, but that would mean I have to change go a proper plan, while trying go sort something out, the Sprint representative told me I can still wait a bit, but be was wrong and deadline given passed and they closed the account.

Try an FCC complaint, iirc it's worked for people in the past to get their number back.

Youíre welcome to try, but AFAIK most carriers at most let you choose an area code (if they have available) then their system generates a list of 5-10 numbers that you can either choose from or refresh the list for different numbers.

That really wont work, dont waste your time with that. What might work is what was mentioned earlier, FCC complaint or Email executives.

Why would you contact metro? Your account was with T-Mobile and they're responsible for it.

Google voice allows to search for specific phone numbers when signing up iirc, see if it's available there.

Google voice doesn't have it

You'd contact TMobile because you were their customer.

Ask for contact info here
