When you get laid off they send you a friendly PDF on how to contact your provider to keep both. Speaking from, ahem, experience.

I see...so how would you manage payment going forward? Especially if you don't want to continue on Verizon and want to switch to T-Mobile

You go to T Mobile and say you want to switch and keep your Verizon number.

you can port the # by calling t-mobile first and setting up an acct and then calling verizon and telling them to release the # to t-mobile. they do it a lot between the companies so they can walk you through it.

Go through mykcurve and mobility. You can "transfer service out" and keep the phone and number. Or call the help desk. They can help. Super easy.

You may need to take some costs of the device depending on when you got it, who you switch to, etc.

Ever had an attorney randomly pull food that they somehow squished in their shoe during long court days. One day, it was taking forever in federal court due to the COVID backlog. An attorney was sitting at a table across from where I was sitting. Kept noticing him reaching down like he was scratching his foot then would bring his hand to his mouth. Very strange. Court concluded and I saw him by his car taking off his shoe and pulling a squished baggy with half a sandwich out of it.
