How Toll Free Number Porting Works

If you've tried to port 800 numbers in the past, especially internationally, you probably already know how much the porting process can change depending on the phone number's country, carrier, and dial-code. Luckily, AVOXI's international number porting team excels at simplifying this process for customers in over 100 countries.

Toll Free Number Porting Requirements

While the requirements to transfer toll free phone numbers may differ between countries, in most cases you will need some combination of the following to start a toll free number port: 

  • Letter of Authorization: This allows a new carrier to reach out to your current provider and start the number porting process for you. AVOXI provides this for anyone interested in transferring an 800 number to our network.
  • Proof of Ownership: Providing proof of ownership is as simple as sending a PDF copy of an invoice that associates your number, name, and billing address.
  • Number Porting Form: An additional form may be required to port international numbers. This is not required to port US or Canadian phone numbers.

Common Questions About Toll Free Number Porting

Backed by 20 years of experience providing toll free number services, nobody but AVOXI makes 800 number porting so easy in 100+ countries. 

How long does it take to port a toll free phone number?

The time required to complete a toll free number transfer varies due to differences in the regulating bodies between countries and bottlenecks caused by the originating carrier. In most cases, international number ports to AVOXI are completed in: 

  • US and Canada toll free porting: 1-2 weeks
  • US and Canada local number porting: 2-3 weeks
  • International number porting: 3-4 weeks

What will it cost to port an 800 phone number?

If you'd like to port an 800 phone number to AVOXI, your total costs depend on your other carrier, as they may have a fee for porting numbers out in your contract. If they do not charge to port numbers out of their network, then porting your phone numbers is free! In fact, AVOXI will credit your account so you don't even pay for your first month of calls with on our network.

How can I prevent delays while transferring toll free phone numbers?

There are a couple of steps you can take to ensure there are no delays during your toll free number transfer:

  1. Make sure all of the details on your LOA are correct. Simple mistakes on this form can potentially cause your port request to be rejected.
  2. Do not discontinue your original service before porting is completed. If you do, you risk having your number released and losing it forever.

How can I avoid service interruptions while transferring an 800 phone number?

Businesses can’t just disconnect their number for a month without significant losses. To help avoid service interruption, you can set up call forwarding to a temporary line from your new provider. Now, any calls made to your primary business number will be automatically forwarded to your temporary line.

What else should I consider when requesting a toll free number transfer?

Before beginning the porting process, make sure you have reviewed the terms with your existing service provider. If you are in a contract, there may be early termination fees. Also, be sure that your account is in good standing before starting to port. If you have an outstanding balance, your previous provider may choose to terminate your service and release your number before the port is completed.  Finally, be sure to check if your toll free number is portable. In rare instances, a number may not be eligible for porting.

Can customers still reach me during the number porting process?

Yes, if you follow the steps outlined above, your 800 numbers should remain active throughout the process. For an extra layer of security, you can set up a temporary 800 number with AVOXI and forward calls made to your original number until the porting process is complete.

What else can AVOXI do for my business?
