There's an additional step that you need to know about when it comes to Canadian numbers.
Important: Authorize your Canadian port in
Once your porting request has been submitted with NumberBarn, the carrier for your Canadian telephone number will likely reach out to you to authorize the request. In most cases, this will be a text message and you are required to respond to that text message within 90 minutes or the port request will be rejected. This means that the number must still have active service and be able to receive text messages.
In some cases, you can contact your carrier or service provider and ask them to approve the port out of your number.
If for some reason your port request is rejected, please contact customer support (if we haven't already contacted you) and we will arrange the best time with you to resubmit your porting request.
We recognize that in some cases you'll need to reinsert the SIM card on your phone to receive text messages and we'll do our best to accommodate your schedule.
