How will I know when the port-out process is complete?
You will be notified by:
- In-app pop-up: If the porting out process was successful, you will receive a pop-up notification the next time you open the app letting you know that you have successfully ported your number out of Sideline, and how to pick a new Sideline number.
- Push Notification: You'll receive a quick notification letting you know everything is done, and the next steps to take based on the outcome of your request.
- Email: If you've set up an email address on your Sideline account, we'll send you an email letting you know the porting process is complete and the next steps to take based on the outcome of your request.
Once the process is complete and you enter the app again, you will be redirected to the “Pick Your Number” page. If you wish to, you can obtain a new Sideline number.
