Have a number already that you'd like to use as your Sideline number? To help you out, we put together a guide for everything you'll need to successfully port your number from Google Voice.
There is a one time $3 fee (charged Google Voice) to transfer your number away from Google voice.
In order to proceed, you will need to unlock the number
- To do this:
- Go to www.google.com/voice/unlock, and sign into your Google account.
- Click "Unlock my number".
- If you have more than one number, select the number you want to port from the dropdown menu, then click "Unlock my number."
- Click "Continue" to confirm.
- Sign into Google Wallet to complete your transfer out process.
Once you unlock your number, you'll need:
- Account Number: Use your 10-digit Google Voice number as your account number.
- PIN: Your PIN is what you use to access your Google Voice voicemail from a different phone.
- If you don't have a PIN set up, you should create one before requesting a port into Sideline.
- To set a PIN: sign into your Google voice account, click on the gear icon in the top right of the page, click on "Settings", and click on the Voicemail tab.
- Billing Telephone Number: This is the number you want to transfer.
- Account Owner's Name: This is the name associated with the Google Voice account.
- Billing Address: This is the address that is associated with the Google Voice account.
