Do I Own My Phone Number?

If you’re considering making a purchase or have already purchased a phone number from NumberBarn, you’re probably wondering:

The answer to that question is:

So, how does this work?

Here’s an overview of the process:

  • You find your dream number. (Start your search here)
  • You make your purchase. (We don’t charge you until your number is active)
  • You select a plan to keep your number active. (Even if your number is here temporarily, you’ll still need a plan)
  • We activate the number. (This can take anywhere from 3 hours to 7 days)
  • We place the number in your account. (We’ll email you when your number is ready)

What you’ll need to do:

  • Keep your number active. (Do not delete your number)
  • Keep your account active. (Pay your balance each month)

If you’re planning to transfer your number away:

  • Wait until your number is activated. (This can take anywhere from 3 hours to 7 days. We’ll email you when your number is ready. If you port your number before it is active, it will not go through)
  • Keep your account active. (Pay your balance for your service. Numbers from suspended accounts cannot be ported away)
  • Keep your number active. (Do not delete your number until your number has ported away)
  • Contact your new service provider to initiate the request. (They will help you with this process)
