Hi guys! So today my Verizon contract ends. I'm not planning to renew the contract - will be joining my mom on her sprint account. So a few questions:
When can I go ahead and purchase a new phone from sprint and port my number?
Should I inform Verizon that I'm porting first?
Billing ends: May 23rd

I would call to let them know, and don't port until the day after the cycle ends, making sure you have a zero balance and are paid through the last day of service.
If your contract ends today, you should be able to port out tomorrow with no ETF.
There is no need to contact Verizon. The port should cancel your account. If you contact Verizon first, they may initiate a cancellation and you may end up losing your number.
Keep in mind, you are responsible for all charges until the end of your billing cycle. You will not get a refund for leaving 2 weeks before the end of your billing cycle. Just make sure the port completes before the start of your next billing cycle or you will be responsible for another month of service.
Good luck with the new provider.
