Sideline has no restrictions for who we will release our numbers to when porting out; however, the gaining carrier may not accept your number. We advise you to check with the carrier of your choice before you unlock your Sideline number for porting out.
Note: Wireless-only carriers, such as Google Voice and Cricket, have historically not accepted Sideline numbers for porting in.
Please contact your new carrier directly to ensure they allow the port-in of VoIP numbers, as Sideline numbers are classified as such.
More Details to Consider:
- Any errors that arise during the port-out process will need to be handled through the service you're taking your number to.
- Since Sideline numbers are VoIP numbers (and not true Wireless numbers), the porting process will typically take between 1-5 business days.
- To unlock the number, you'll just need the Account and PIN number found under the Number Porting section in your Settings. From there, selecting Port-Out Number will reveal your Account and PIN number.
