Guide to port away from is a service provider that leverages different providers depending on the type of phone number, US, Canada, or Toll-free and even internationally.

Porting away from is a simple process but there are a few steps that you must first cover to ensure that you have the correct information. We will address these below.

Account information

Your account information may vary depending on the type of set-up you have with Your account may have numbers under a single account's details or if you have sub-accounts then each number or set of numbers may have different information on file.

If you do not have sub-accounts set-up on your account, then you only need to use your own business information to port the phone numbers out. If you do leverage sub-accounts, then you may need to submit individual ports for each sub-account.

How to retrieve this information:

Company name and Address

This information should be list on the top-left of your invoice.

PIN Number

If you have set-up a PIN number in your account before then you will need this to port your numbers away from them. This is located under “Main Menu”, “Account Settings” then under “Security” tab. If you have not enabled this before, then you do not need to provide a PIN number when porting into Telnyx.
