How do I bring my number to RingRx (aka “Porting”)

How do I bring a number to RingRx?

If you have a number with another telephone company, you can bring it over to your account on RingRx. This process is called a “port” and is an official process in which two phone companies manage who is responsible for your number. To bring your number to RingRx, just fill out the Port Request form here:

Port in form

We will handle the rest. Please be advised it can take 1-3 weeks for a port to complete, so just be prepared for the time schedule. Don’t worry, your number will still work the entire time with no expected downtime.

Forwarding in the Interim

You can also forward your existing number to your temporary RingRx number while the port is in process.  To call forward your number, it would be best to be in touch with RingRx Support just to make sure it is setup and functioning properly.  Because each phone company has some unique particulars surrounding forwarding, its not possible to predict how things will work for everyone. 

To enable forwarding with your current phone company, you will need to check their specific instructions.  To forward to RingRx, the number you use will be the 10-digit number assigned during your trial.
