V1 VoIP Explains Local Number Porting

andline-to-voip-provider.jpg” alt=”V1 VoIP explains how to move phone numbers from a traditional landline to a VoIP provider with LNP local number porting” />
The most common question a new VoIP customer will always ask is “Can I keep my existing number?” It’s one of those questions that no matter how many times you have heard that you can do this when switching from a traditional phone line to VoIP usage, people still want it confirmed. In order to keep the number, it needs to be ported to the new provider. Here V1 VoIP explains what number porting is and how to port your phone number from one provider to another and landline to VoIP.

To keep the old phone number it needs to be moved by a method called Local Number Portability (LNP), or “porting”. Porting is a process which allows users to move their phone numbers from one network or provider to another. There are a number of reasons why someone may wish to do so such as contact consistency, memorability (do you know anyone’s phone number that’s not saved in your phone?), publicity and company branding.

Porting a number from the traditional phone line to VoIP is possible, but not always an available service. In many cases, the former provider will only port for a ‘goodbye’ fee. It’s done mostly in an last-ditch attempt to keep you as their customer and also as a severance payment. In landline to VoIP transitions, local number portability encounters a only few challenges. For one, telephone providers may be restricted in their network’s reach, so users transferring to another city or country simply go out of bounds. As well, local number portability requires a person or business’ registration to match the records both providers have on hand, meaning a number assigned to different individuals, although in the same company or family, does not work.

If you are switching from traditional phone landlines to VoIP, you’ll find the change very simple with only a few steps. All you have to do is activate an account, plug-in a call device, disable the old phone line, and you are off making VoIP calls! Businesses may spend additional time configuring voice menus and other fun VoIP capabilities to suit their needs, but the whole process is incredibly straightforward nonetheless. From VoIP provider to VoIP provider, however, porting cannot typically happen because users do not own the virtual numbers assigned; they instead belong to the network as a whole.

V1 VoIP assigns all numbers automatically through our proprietary backend VoIP Portal system. It provides a wide variety of local and toll-free number area codes to pick from, so users will find their options abundant. See for yourself and follow this link through to the DID numbers page. Speaking with the VoIP provider directly is also a good move to see if there are exceptions or alternatives, so do not hesitate to get in touch.

V1 VoIP Local Number Portability LNP Wholesale Services

Do you need a phone number ported? V1 VoIP has one of the largest LNP (Local Number Portability) services offering around. V1 VoIP has approached the problem by automating the process by developing an online signature LOA and incorporating it into our proprietary backend VoIP Portal. The result has been a smoother and faster porting process for customers.

VoIP’s rapid growth has been challenging for many carriers as they try to process LNP orders. Many carriers are still doing number portability by using handwritten LOA’s and emails. By doing LNP with VoIP Portal, porting a phone number either has become easier. This means if you are porting one, five, or 1,000 phone numbers in bulk.

V1 VoIP’s strength lies in its large footprint. It is one of the few carriers that is a true nationwide provider with several thousand rate centers. Because we have so many rate centers it makes our number porting capabilities much easier and faster. V1 VoIP has grown its footprint by aggregating several carriers in order to provide one large ubiquitous network.

Do you have numbers which need porting? Contact us today or sign up now for our LNP capabilities as well as our rates to do so. We can have your number ported faster than you think.

When You Cannot Port Business Phone Number

There are a few situations where it is not possible to keep your business phone number when going to a new provider. For example:

1. If the customer has already cancelled service with their old provider and therefore the number is no longer active or has been assigned to a new customer.
2. If the new carrier does not have an interconnection agreement with the donor carrier.
3. If the new carrier does not cover the rate center associated with your number.

So if you can’t port your phone number, what can you do?

1. Go Toll Free.
Most providers have a pool of phone numbers available for purchase and immediate use from an online administrative portal. In this case, you should notify existing customers and contacts of the change in phone number via email or other communication channels.

2. Remote Call Forwarding
RCF is a feature offered by V1 VoIP that allows a customer to maintain a phone number in a different geographical area than their physical location. In this case, you would purchase a local phone number with the new provider, and have the current provider use RCF to direct all calls made to the existing phone number to the new phone number. This is great if your phone number is highly visible and changing it would impact your business.
