Note: Number transferring do’s and don’ts:
Be exact. Your information 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. Refer to your current bill or contact your current service provider.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. On average, it takes a minimum of 15 business days for numbers to fully transfer. You can also click Orders in the left sidebar for updates on the status of your transfer request(s).

A dial plan with various nodes such as:
An auto-attendant that gives the customer options to choose from
A schedule for open and closed hours
An external number node that goes to a cell phone or third party phone number
A virtual fax line
A virtual conference room
A ring group or call queue
