    I believe you would have to do this through your wireless carrier

    Yes phreddyl is right you will need to call your carrier. The phone number and account is tied to the SIM card. So they will activate the number and account from your 4s to the new SIM in your 5C. Once the SIM in the 5C is activated it will have your old number.
