What happens if I cancel service with my provider, do I still own the number?
No, the number is yours to use with your provider, if you’re not happy with your carrier, you may port/transfer the number to another carrier but the number must always remain active in order to retain the number.
But I paid for the number, doesn’t that make me the owner?
Yes, but only for as long as you keep it active, just like any other phone number, once service is cancelled and the number not ported out, you’ll most likely lose the number.
So what should I do?
In order to keep the number, you can always port/transfer the number to another provider BEFORE cancelling your current services.
Currently we are considering offers for 100 or more consecutive numbers, if you have blocks you want to sell, please contact us
We cannot guarantee a successful port after this time period. Alternatively, you may extend the time limit by utilizing our ‘Parking’ service: park the number with us for an additional 90 days for $12, you will receive 100 minutes of call forwarding each month as well: Park My Number
Call forwarding with the initial 100 minutes will usually be activated with 1-2 business days (sometimes the same day).
