Listen, I'm sorry to say that you won't be able to keep the phone because it's locked on Virgins network. As for your number you can call Verizon and ask about switching a phone number over {this process is called port a number} and they will have your answer in a couple of minutes.

It all depends on your town. Most of the higher-end prepaid phones, have internal storage and have a slot of an SD card, but as for the service, you'll just have to see who has the best service in your town.

answer 1
Now a days you could use probably any carrier, all of them have come out with no contract. It ranges from 30 to 65 dollars per month for your usage depending on minutes and data.

for eg. T mobile gets you unlimited talk, text and data for 55 including taxes(approx) similar for verizon etc

If you need cheaper options go for Simple Mobile. There's lot of options available. Get any new phone or old unlocked phone you have and get connected.

I have Verizon's prepaid service, but Straight Talk is a little better, if they have that in your town. Straight Talk doesn't have the greatest phones, but they do have unlimited everything for $45 a month, while Verizon is Unlimited Talk/Text and 500 MB of data.

The iOS 5 is the older systems program. The iOS 7 is the update. If you have an iphone 4 4s or 5, you can have either or without any problem. If you can't get the updates in your settings on your phone, then contact the company. Personally, I have the iOS 7 on iphone 4. I use to have the iOS 5 before I decided to get the upgrade.

Depends on what kind of device you are using. Smartphones have a different monthly plan than non smartphones. But you should be able to just continue using Verizon with no problem.

answer 2
When you say 'service with Verizon', do you mean a contract service that you just happened to be 'out-of-contract' for? If so, you can get any phone as long as it's under Verizons network from ebay, or wherever and activate it which will allow you to not be under contract.

Yes. You're just going to pay for the phone at the no contract price which is a lot higher but you can stay off contract.

If you have a pre-paid plan then you should be able to buy any Verizon pre-paid phone and switch out as often as you wish.
If you mean that you're at the end of your contract and are month to month then you'd have to upgrade your phone and get involved in another contract.

Question

Can I transfer minutes from one service provider to another?

I have a broken tracfone with 700 minutes left on it. It is my second tracfone, and seeing that they have been pretty unreliable, I would like to try another prepaid company. Could I transfer my tracfone minutes to a different prepaid provider, or will my minutes have to stay on the tracfone?

answer 2
unfortunately, you CANNOT trnsfer your minutes onto another company because you already bought the minutes with Tracfone. You are left with two hard choices:
1) try to buy another phone with tracfone. Maybe call them and ask to talk to a manager and explain your issue with phone quality and who knows?.they might offer you a better phone for a good price rather than loose you as a customer to another company.

2) look into other companies, compare prices and accept loosing the 700 minutes by going with someone else.

Another option would be to get another tracfone( the most basic one) and once you use up the minutes, close it and go another company.
