That's actually a good idea. Why not just say you live in a T-mobile area? Get the new phone, keep your number. The biggest hassle might be shipping it to Tim to activate (if they require it to be sent to a T-mobile area), but after that it should work in Omaha on US Cellular just fine?
Because it doesn't work like that. The address doesn't matter where they ship it, but the number itself is a problem. I have a 402 area code, which is Omaha. I need a 515 area code to be on Fi since that's TMO. This is what google support has told me. It boils down to I have to have a different phone number to switch to Fi.

I had a similar problem trying to port my Iowa number to Google voice, said they can't port my area code.
Edit: just tried my 712 number in fi and can't do it either.
