Transferring your existing number to our VoIP phone service could not be easier. Whether you’re leaving your traditional phone line, changing your VoIP provider, or geographic phone number we will take care of the transfer process for you.
Before your Transfer
1. What numbers can I transfer?
We are able to transfer any UK landline number. You can still use our VoIP Service if you have an 08 number. To do this you will need to forward your 08 number to the number we provide to you.
2. What is the cost of the number transfer?
- Single Line transfer cost: £15.00 + VAT
- Multi Line transfer cost: £80 + VAT
A letter of authorisation will need to be signed for each number you wish to port. You will also need to provide a copy of a bill (within the last three months) from your current provider. This information is required to confirm the details of the business owner and address.
If any of the information provided on the letter of authorisation is incorrect, this may cause the number transfer to be rejected. Each time the number transfer is rejected due to incorrect information provided to us, you will be charged per rejection before we can resubmit the number porting request again.
- Charge for rejection: £15 + VAT (Fixed charge for Single and Multi Line)
3. How long does the number transfer take?
Provided all the information is accurate on the letter of authorisation, your number transfer will take between 7-21 days to port across to our servers. We will contact you once the date of transfer has been confirmed.
