Which carrier told you that? I just transferred my number and didn't
have to sign up for a contract with T-mobile. They didn't even try to
sell me one when I told them I already had a phone. They also allowed
me to transfer my number a couple weeks after activating the SIM, so I
was able to have a temporary number for the Freerunner while I tested
calling it with my old cell phone.
On the other hand, Sprint, who I was switching from, did send me a
huge bill for quitting before my contract expired, even though it had
expired years ago. I called Sprint up and, to make a long story
short, after I reminded them that they are big dummies, they
apologized and dropped the charges. :-)
