Porting Numbers Away from CallTrackingMetrics
Home › Support Hub › Numbers › Number Management › Porting Numbers Away from CallTrackingMetrics
If you would like to port a number away from CallTrackingMetrics, you should initiate that request with the carrier you would like to move the number to. They will walk you through their process and contact us to confirm that you want to move the number to them. We do not charge any fees to release numbers for port and we will respond to these requests quickly. Tracking numbers must be kept in your account for at least 90 days prior to porting away to another carrier.
To ensure the porting process is not interrupted, it is important that you keep the numbers active in your CallTrackingMetrics account until you have final confirmation from the new carrier that the number has been fully ported. Once you have received this confirmation, it’s safe to release the numbers from your CallTrackingMetrics account. If you no longer wish to use your account at this time, you can cancel your account instead, which will automatically release any remaining numbers in the account.
