How to port over to Ting, keep phone number
You can keep your current phone number when you switch to Ting. In industry parlance, we call this “porting” a number. This article will walk you through the basics of keeping your current phone number when you grab a Ting SIM card and activate it.
Our Ting port process is pretty easy, but if you run into any trouble along the way, we’re here to help by chat, email and phone.
A couple “need to knows” before you get started
- Don’t cancel your current service just yet. A phone number has to be active in order for us to port it.
- Give it a little time. Phone numbers can take up to 24 hours to transfer, but we usually see them come through pretty quickly in just a few hours in the same business day. Before you start your transfer process make sure you don’t need to be immediately reached on your cell.
