How to set a port-out pin - is it the same as the T-Mobile ID PIN?

magenta10099607

    I've read a few posts on this, but I can't find a definitive answer.

     

    Is the port-out pin the same pin that is listed under my T-Mobile ID section of my account profile in my My.T-Mobile.com account (https://my.t-mobile.com/account/profile/tmobile_id) as the "PIN/PASSCODE"?  Or is the "PIN/PASSCODE" a pin just for verification when accessing my account and there is a separate pin for preventing porting of my phone number?

     

    This post implies that there are 2 pins (one for account access and another for port out):

    Port security PIN

     

    But this page (at the bottom under the "Port-Out Fraud Protection" section) implies that I can set a port out pin from my My.T-Mobile.com account:

    Account Verification | Customer/Authorized-User Verification

     

    Also, will setting one PIN on the account protect all the lines under my account or does each need a separate port-out PIN?

     

    Thanks
