• Porting a Phone Number to Verizon Wireless

    Porting a phone number to Verizon Wireless is the process of moving the number from the current carrier (losing carrier) to Verizon Wireless (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.

    • – Submit that information to Verizon Wireless
    • – Wait 3 calendar days for the number to start working automatically.
    • – Reprogram outbound caller ID on your wireless phone handset using your new number.
