If you are transferring more than 100 numbers from the same carrier, please let us know here as we assist with project-based porting. Your number must be active with your provider in order for it to be transferred to RingCentral. You may cancel your phone service after the transfer is complete.
The cost of negotiating the transfer of your number from your existing phone carrier is shouldered by RingCentral.
The information needed to port your number will be collected during order creation. This includes the number(s) you are porting, your account number (the account number is often different from your wireless phone number), the PIN/passcode on your account (if applicable) and the physical address the numbers are registered under (no PO Boxes).
Some carriers will require a copy of your recent phone bill, or other verification information. If this happens, we'll work with you to provide that information to the carrier and complete the porting process. Once your order is verified, we'll work with your existing carrier to port your number as quickly as possible.
