I am going to port my number from Verizon to Red Pocket Mobile. I will be using the same phone and changing the SIM card. Can anyone tell me if I will lose my contact list with all the saved numbers?

My iPhone doesn't when I change sims and they have different numbers.

It all depends on what app you are using for contacts. If you are using a carrier contact app or a phone manufacturer app you are always faced with this issue if you want to change carrier or phone company. If you use Google contacts or any cloud based app that is not carrier or phone manufacturer based, your contacts are always there and you are free to move to another phone or carrier company with no effect on your contacts. It is easy to import contacts from any other application into Google Contacts before you switch to avoid losing contacts in a switch.

How old is your flip phone
Does it have even a rudimentary mobile internet app,
Camera, send pictures
Those are/were called "Feature phones"
And yes there is a way to back up contacts
Even if you have to plug into your PC and save the file that way
