What happens while my number is being ported?
During the number port process we provide you a temporary number so that you can begin to use our service and all of its features immediately. This way you will not need to depend on your former phone company while the port takes place. When your number is ported your temporary phone number will automatically become inactive.
What happens if my number cannot be ported?
If we cannot port your number, you may choose to get a new number in your area or elsewhere. Alternatively you may decide to keep your existing phone number with minimal service and add another number that will help you save big on outgoing calls.

Is there any downtime during porting?
