In most cases InPhonex lets you keep your existing phone number even if you're moving out of the area code where your phone number is located. Make the move to InPhonex and get all the features you used to have to pay for ... FREE. Call waiting, three way calling, Voicemail and many more features are included free with every InPhonex account.
Find out if you can switch your number (land line or cell) to InPhonex by entering it into the availability selector to the right and we'll instantly tell you if your number is transferable.
Keep in mind that if your phone number is connected to your DSL connection, you need to take additional steps to transfer your number to us. If you want to keep your DSL connection, check with your current phone service provider to see if they offer "naked DSL". If so, they can unbundle your phone number from your DSL service allowing you to transfer the number without problem. If your current provider does not offer that service, check with your local cable company as most cable operators offer higher speed Internet connections at a more competitive price.

11. Why is my number not portable?
Number porting requires interaction between carriers and in some cases, your current provider might not be able to port numbers out. In addition, in some regions (usually rural areas), our footprint does not include the ability to port numbers due to infrastructure and carrier partnerships.
12. What is required to port my number to InPhonex?
In order to port your number we will need a copy of the LOA (Letter of authorization, sent at the time of the order) Signed and dated. We will also require proof of ownership of the number. This is most commonly found in the form of a phone bill (no later than 30 days old). Be sure your proof of ownership shows your name, Address, and the Telephone number being ported. Also be sure that the information on the bill matches the information on the Letter of authorization. Documents required for international ports vary from country to country.
13. What can cause delays in my porting
Porting can take up to 30 days on a clear and correct order. There are several factors that can affect the port time of your order. The primary cause of delay is invalid information. Check with your current provider to be sure you are providing us with the correct Name, Address, and Billing telephone number for your order. Sometimes the provider has things listed differently in their system then you think. Another common cause for delay is outdated proof of ownership; please be sure that the LOA and bill are both dated within 30 days.
14. My provider says the info is correct, but I am still being rejected. What can I do?
Please contact your current carrier and request a copy of your “CSR”(customer service record). They are required by law to give this to you, and the CSR is the magic key to all things LNP.
