Can you put your boost number on a Verizon phone?

I'd recommend you call Boost Mobile customer service on this one. When I tried doing it in 2010, you could not transfer a Boost Mobile phone number to another carrier (and, just like you, I tried transferring it to Verizon) - you couldn't even transfer a Boost Mobile number to Nextel (Boost Mobile basically was a prepaid Nextel). Things might have changed, now that Nextel has been eliminated and fully folded into Sprint, although I'm doubtful.
