I know when you leave carriers, you can port your number to another one. You didnt give it to them when you signed up? It shouldnt be too late. Call your new carrier and tell them you want to port your old number over.

Tony - which country do you live in...??
Here in the UK we have something called the Porting Authorisation Agreement where the Service Providers agree to allow you to move you rnumber from one provider to another once you are out of minimum term committment. Your current SP would then produce a PAC code which you give to your new SP - they enter that into their computer systems and in takes 48-hours to move over.
In the UK you need to port your number in at the point of connection to do this with Vodafone; with o2 you have a 2 week peiord in whcih to move your numbers and with T-Mobile and Orange you can do it at any point along the lifetime of the agreement.
Not sure whatthe process is in other countries.
Hope that helps
