Before you begin: You must have admin or super admin permissions.
  1. Log in at
  2. Click Phone Numbers in the left sidebar.
  3. Click Transfer and then select one of the following options:
    • Transfer Numbers to start a new transfer request
    • Continue Transfer to continue working on an existing transfer request
  4. Optional: Order a number for temporary use while you wait for your port to complete. This would allow you to enable a forward on your old system from your porting number to this temporary number to allow you to use your new system sooner.

    Note: Number transferring do’s and don’ts:
    • Be exact. Your information (including your pin number) must match exactly with what’s on record with your current phone service provider. If the information provided does not match, your transfer will be delayed or rejected. Refer to your current bill or contact your current service provider.
    • Be patient. Port requests with properly submitted information can take a minimum of 15 business days to process. If there are rejections due to incorrect information or anything else, that timeline will be extended.
    • Do not cancel your current service until the ports are all complete.
    • Do not cancel your Broadband service as this could cause a delay in starting your GoToConnect service.
    • Do not cancel your temporary number until the ports are all complete and the ported numbers are routed correctly. When you are ready to cancel a number, please email

What to do next: You will receive an email when we receive a transfer date (a.k.a. Firm Order Commitment (FOC)) from your current carrier. This may take a few days or more depending on your current carrier and the quality of the information you provided in your request. You can also click Orders in the left sidebar for updates on the status of your transfer request(s).
