• Porting a Phone Number to 8×8

    Porting a phone number to 8×8 is the process of moving the number from the current carrier (losing carrier) to 8×8 (winning carrier). This is not the same thing as call forwarding – where an inbound call is simply forwarded to a different number. With porting, the number becomes part of the winning carrier’s network.


    • – Gather current account information for where the new number is right now.
    • – Submit that information to 8×8 online through their Number Transfer interface.
    • – Wait about 3-8 business days for the number to start working automatically.
