So these guys claim they take up to 5 days to port. Not the case. We have Benn getting extension request at my new carrier from them almost everyday. Each time they request 3-4 days to port. Complete wait of of time. Don't port from here.

Response from Brian M., NumberBarn Representative
Hello Yuriy! Thank you for your comments. Numbers with NumberBarn are classified by the FCC as landline/wireline numbers. In the majority of cases, porting takes anywhere from 3 to 7 business days, up to 10 business days, to port to and from our system. When porting away, it is always recommended to have the gaining carrier select at least 5 business days out. This is what we communicate on our website and this is what we have communicated with you via our support emails. We know it can be frustrating when this happens, but so long as the gaining provider selects a date at least 5 business days out, the port is approved and the new provider does not resubmit the request. Each new resubmission can restart the porting time frame, which isn't fun. We look forward to continuing our work with you and to a successful port out to your new provider!

I was hesitant to cancel my old unused home phone service. I've had the number for 12 years! We rarely used it and it was getting expensive to keep. NumberBarn was cheap and I was surprised at how easy it was to sign up and transfer my number. So far notifications work great, I'm saving over $40 a month and I don't get all those spam telemarketer calls anymore.

Hi, Oswaldo! Our service does allow you to port a number to and from a mobile provider of your choice. The rate center of the number must be supported by each carrier, however. You can also forward your number with NumberBarn to an outside cell phone number.

Question:
Answer:

Hi k t. You can definitely port your landline number to NumberBarn! Porting is what we do. However, you won't be able to port from NumberBarn directly to Google Voice. NumberBarn's numbers are classified as "wireline" and Google Voice will only accept wireless numbers. You can port your number to a cheap wireless service first and then on to Google Voice. We offer some help in our Help Center on this if you are interested: https://help.numberbarn.com/knowledge_base/topics/will-my-new-carrier-accept-a-numberbarn-number If you have any other questions about porting, feel free to reach out to us via email to support@numberbarn.com
