NumberBarn and NumberGarage numbers are classified as landline/wireline numbers. This is the same whether you purchase it from us or port it to us.
Can I turn a wireless number into a wireline number?
Yup! When you port (also called "transfer") your cell phone number to us, it's converted from a wireless number to wireline number.
Can I turn a wireline number back into a wireless number?
Yup! You can turn your wireline number into a wireless number by porting it to a mobile provider that can support it.
This means you will port it away from us and the number will be used with your preferred mobile or wireless carrier. Just be sure to check in with them to ensure that they support the rate center for your number.
This process of porting a number away takes about 3 to 10 business days.
After the number is ported, you no longer pay us. You pay your new provider instead.
