A number port allows you to move a pre-existing number from another carrier to be used on your Zoom Phone account. Project porting is when you port more than 100 numbers.
This article covers:
- Account owner or admin permissions
- Zoom Phone licenses
You will need to provide the following information:
- Your account number from your current carrier (if applicable)
- If it is a wireless number, your 4 digit PIN number (required for all wireless ports)
Inform Zoom ahead of time if you are using your existing phones with Zoom Phone. If so, you may need to contact your current carrier on the day of port to unlock the phone so that we can provision them to Zoom Phone.
Requesting a Number Port
- Download and complete the required Letter of Agency (LOA).
- Download and complete the required Project Porting Sheet.
Note: If you are porting toll-free numbers, fill out the Toll-Free LOA as well.
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the LOA and Project Porting Sheet.
- A Zoom team member will review and confirm receipt of the request.
- Zoom Phone and their porting partners will send a request to your previous provider to validate the information on the LOA. If accepted, Zoom and the previous provider will work together to activate the pending port. Once approved, it will be available to you to manage in the Zoom web portal.
Common Porting Errors
Invalid Porting Address
We received a rejection when attempting to complete the porting request due to incorrect information provided on the Letter Of Agency (LOA). Verify all information (name on account, billing address, account number, and number to be ported). This information can typically be found on a bill provided by a previous provider.
