What is porting?

Porting it the process of transferring a phone number from one provider to a different provider. This is most often done in the process switching providers.

Porting your existing number to OpenPhone is a four-step process:

  1. We submit a port request to your current provider and negotiate a port date.
  2. Once we hear back, we inform you of the port date & time.
  3. On the port date, we make your phone number available in your OpenPhone account.
  4. Once the number is ported successfully, you can cancel your account with your current provider.
