Sideline has no restrictions for who we will release our numbers to; however, the gaining carrier may not accept your number. Please check with the carrier of your choice before you unlock* your Sideline number. Wireless only carriers, such as Google Voice and Cricket, have historically not accepted Sideline numbers for porting in. Please contact your new carriers directly to ensure they will port your Sideline number.
Please see our other article "What do I need to port my number out?" to makes sure you're ready to provide the correct information to the winning carrier.
More Details to Consider:
- Any errors that arise will need to be dealt with through the service you're taking your number to
- Since Sideline numbers are VoIP numbers (and not true Wireless), the porting process will take between 1-5 business days
- To unlock the number, you'll just need the Account and PIN numbers found under the Number Porting section in your Settings. From there, selecting "Port-Out Number" will reveal your Account and PIN numbers.
