When will your new number be ready?

Time to party! But first – time to do your hair. Can’t leave until then!

Same goes for your phone number. We’ll place the order and when it’s ready to go, you can start to use it or port it away.

So, when will my new number be ready to party?

A number isn’t ready for use – that being, incoming calls or to port away to a different service provider – until it is activated.

Activation can take anywhere from 2 hours up to 7 business days.

The activation window will be available for you on your number prior to purchase.

The video below goes into detail on how to find this activation window and what it means for your number:

Peace of Mind

During the time it takes to activate the number, you can configure your number settings. It will not work until the number activates, but you’ll have peace of mind knowing that once it does activate, it will work right away.

Here are instructions for two common set up scenarios:

How to Set Up My Custom Park Greeting

You will not be able to port a number away until it is activated. Once activated, follow the instructions here on how to port away:

Have a blast at the party, friends!
