212 Phone Number – Porting vs. Call-Forwarding
What is the Difference between Number Porting & Call Forwarding?
Number Porting – Local number portability (LNP)
Local Number Portability (LNP), also known as number portability and number porting, enables you to transfer / port the 212 telephone number purchased from us to your service provider.
Call forwarding of 212 numbers, or call diversion, is a feature of some telephone switching systems which redirects a telephone call to another destination, which may be, for example, a mobile telephone, voicemail box or another telephone number where the desired called party is available. Call forwarding typically can redirect incoming calls to any other domestic telephone number, but the owner of the forwarded line must pay any toll charges for forwarded calls.
