Get the new phone and new sim before your contract is up.

Try out the phone and make sure everything works, how long this takes is up to you.

Initiate the number port with your new provider after the tmobile contract is up but the account is still active.

The number port will terminate your tmobile account.

Look at Ting.com. I'm going to try it when my contract is up. You only pay for what you use. It uses the sprint network. You just have to buy the phone from them.

This part is critical, if the MDN is not active it will be rejected. The kicker for TMobile retail is they respond to the 1st port request immediately, but if it fails and then the request is resubmitted.. it gets put in another bucket and can take a few hours before it is looked at. So make sure all information is correct before submitting, this will make the port a smooth process.
