ANSWERS
  1. Can I transfer my old phone number if I have DSL (high-speed internet service through my telephone company)?
    Yes, but you must call your DSL provider and request to have your telephone and internet service to be UNBUNDLED (Click here for more info). Your DSL provider will then assign another number to your DSL connection and your existing phone number will become a stand alone line. This will allow us to port your existing number to our service without affecting your DSL connection. It is important that you DO NOT cancel your existing phone line until the transfer is completed which takes 4-6 weeks. If you are a new customer, we will assign you a new temporary number While your number is being ported.

  2. How long will it take to transfer my existing phone number?
    Transferring your number can take between 4-8 weeks to complete. Once you submit the necessary paperwork to us, a porting request is submitted to your current phone company within 1-2 business days. From there, it ultimately depends on how fast your current phone company can process our request and release your number to us. Your current phone provider may reject or delay our porting request for these reasons:

    - Pending balance owing
    - Name or address mismatch (must match exactly as it appears on your phone bill)
    - Contract obligations
    - Associated features such as ADSL, Distinct Ring, Additional numbers
