Moving across the country or going on a temporary leave? Not sure when or where you'll need service for that number? Don't just cancel your phone service and lose your number. Or worse, pay your provider's outrageous parking and activation fees. Park your old number and safely store it with NumberBarn. You can easily transfer it out to the provider of your choice or upgrade your plan with us for free.
You've had that old home phone number for years, but it's use has been replaced by your cell phone. Over those years you've used it as a contact for countless services and businesses, schools and organizations. Now you're ready to cancel it and save some money. What happens when you cancel that service and lose your number? Those calls, texts and personal contacts continue to reach that old phone number. And when that number is reissued, a new phone subscriber now has easy access that personal information. Parking your number lets you notify those contacts before your number goes back into circulation.

Can I change my plan to use call forwarding?

How long does it take to port a number?
We've all heard the reports of "same day" transfers. Yes, same day transfers do happen, but the truth is only wireless to wireless transfers will happen within 24 hours. And not because wireless carriers care more about their customers, but because the Federal Communications Commision (FCC) and the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) mandate it. We are the best in the biz, but NumberBarn is not a carrier. We are a service provider. We are subject to our vendor and carrier time frames. Most number ports will take 3 - 10 business days to activate.
Is there a fee to port out to another provider?
There are no fees to port your number away from NumberBarn. Your new provider may charge a port in fee.
Will my new carrier accept a phone number transferred from NumberBarn?
The majority of carriers will accept phone number transfers from NumberBarn. Some mobile carriers have policies that only allow them to port in "wireless" phone numbers. NumberBarn's numbers are classified as "wireline" and that classification can not be modified by NumberBarn. Check with you new carrier first.
Can I port out a number to any phone?
Cellular phones and VoIP can be used with any number. However, landlines must be associated with an area code for the region it is in. So while you can use a California 951 area code for a cellphone or VOIP carrier in New York (as an example), you would need a local New York area code such as 646 for a landline.
Please note: Not every phone number in your area code will work at every address in your area code. This is true of all numbers in the country. If you move outside of your “rate center”, even your current landline number would not work at your new address. It has to do with the legacy telecom switch network. VOIP and wireless carriers are not bound by these restrictions. They use the internet and cell towers, respectively, independent of the telecom switch network.
Pricing is simple. No hidden fees, no commitments, and no surprises.Get Started Now
