I have a contract for my daughter with 2 years left. She wants to buy a phone in her own name so my son is going to take over the contract for her. Is it possible for my daughter to have her number transferred to the new phone she buys if my son is still using the contract?

No that isn't possible.

If you transfer the number it will close the contract.

The way it could be done would be for your daughter to get a new contract in her name and put her current sim in it. Place the new contract sim in the old phone for your son to use.

A bit of faff but it would work.
