How do I swap out my cell phone number with my NumberBarn number?

A little birdy said that you plucked a phone number with NumberBarn.

This little birdy also said that you want that phone number to be your new cell phone number and then to Park your current cell phone number with NumberBarn.

While birds of a feather flock together, phone numbers that are swapping service providers do not.

You’re not owl by yourself in figuring out how to do this.

Before you take flight:

Don’t just wing it. Contact your cell phone provider beforehand to make sure you know what number to port first. Otherwise they might cancel your account.

A cancelled cell phone account? That’s hawkard.

We want you to avoid any ruffled feathers over what should be an easy phone number swap. No reason to flip the bird.

By contacting your cell phone provider, you’ll know which number should leave the nest first.

A wild goose never laid a tame egg. And, sometimes porting can be confusing. Remember, it will take about 3-7 business days to port a number away from NumberBarn and the same time frame to port a number to NumberBarn.

But, don’t let the time frame turn you into a chicken and stop you from wanting to leave the roost.

Your cell phone provider will have the answer to your specific account and which number you should port first.

Hoot have thought it would be so easy?

We’re NumberBarn, we take phone numbers very seriously. But, we also like to have a little fun. To learn more about us, visit and follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.
