Porting my number from Telstra SIM only plan

Hi all, a couple of quick questions.  My wife and I have been on post paid plans with Telstra for the last 14 years, so I'm not sure how the whole porting process works.


I am intending on buying out a device that is on a 24 month lease, ending in December this year.  I want to change it to a SIM only plan with Telstra.


My question relates to changing from the SIM only plan to a Woolworths Mobile or Boost plan.  Can my wife keep her number?  If so, do we just sign up with the new provider and let them do it?  Sorry if this is a stupid question, but most posts relate to coming to Telstra, not the other way round.
