Number Porting to Google Voice™

This tutorial will guide you through the process of porting a non-mobile number to Google Voice. Once your number is ported, you can eliminate the monthly fee and use this number on the OBi with Google Voice.

Since Google does not support porting non-mobile numbers to Google Voice directly, this requires a two-step process that we will describe in greater detail below. In essence, you will first port your number to a mobile service number and then the mobile service number (previously the original number) to become your Google Voice number.

Before you begin, do this first!
Before you begin the process to convert your land line number to a mobile number for further porting to Google Voice, perform a "sanity check" on the number using the Google Voice Number Porting Tool. Click Here to access the tool. When you enter your land line number you will see one of the following messages.

Msg: Ooops! This number appears to be from an area we don't currently support.
For some area codes, Google Voice does not support porting, e.g. Hawaii (808), Alaska (907). If you get this result when you enter your land line number, you will not be able to port you number to Google Voice. It is of no use to complete the steps below.

Msg: Ooops! We currently don't support porting from your carrier. We apologize and are working on adding support for more carriers.
This is actually good news, because once your land line number is ported to a mobile service, it will be able to be ported to Google Voice. Please continue reading and follow the steps below to convert your land line number to a mobile number. Then you can port it to become your Google Voice number.

Important Note: Google Voice cannot be used to place or receive emergency services calls.
Requirements: An unlocked mobile phone (with SIM card access) and a pre-paid SIM card from T-Mobile available here (link).

1. Check if your number can be ported or transferred to T-Mobile. Click here to check.
2. If your number is eligible for transfer, buy a prepaid SIM card from T-Mobile here (link)or at any authorized T-Mobile dealer. This will cost approximately $3 to $7. Select the image to the right to purchase from Amazon.
3. When you receive the prepaid SIM card, activate the SIM card using the instructions included in the package. You will choose a new (temporary) number and PIN. Insert the SIM card into an unlocked phone and a test call — call in and out.
4. Call T-Mobile's activation department at 1-800-937-8997. Request to port your old number to your new prepaid SIM account.
5. In 1 to 3 days, you will receive confirmation that the number port is complete, check to see that the number is working properly — E.g. Your old number is now the mobile number.
6. Go to your Google Voice account and request to port your T-Mobile number to Google Voice. The request to port link is found in, "Voice Settings." Look for the"Change/Port" link (click here for example screen shot). Google will charge a one-time fee of $20 for this service. You will need to provide your T-Mobile account number which is your ported number, e.g. 1-xxx-xxx-xxxx and your PIN. Note: Use your newly ported, original number — not the number you choose when activating the SIM card. Google will call the mobile number for activation purposes, so be sure to have your unlocked phone in which you inserted the prepaid SIM card.
7. In 1-3 days, Google will email you to confirm the porting is complete.
    



You may now start using your old number with Google Voice on your new OBi!

Still hanging onto your home phone? Worse, still paying for it?

I suspect this is pretty common. It's a hassle to give up a landline, if only because that number you've had for so many years is "on file" at so many places. It's your home number -- and you need to keep that, right?

The number, yes. But the service? Well, that's another matter. By porting that number to Google Voice, you can keep your home number and actually make it a little more versatile. You can also stop paying extra for it -- probably.

How much is your landline costing you?

I know from an informal social media poll that some folks out there still have plain old telephone service (or a POTS) and are still paying anywhere from $30-$80 per month. Yikes.

Assuming you have reliable and speedy internet service, you could switch to a voice-over-IP (VoIP) phone system like Ooma. The Ooma Telo ($70 at Amazon) box plugs into your router and then delivers basic home-phone service -- with your same number -- for free. Ooma Premier adds a bunch of bells and whistles for $10 per month -- still way cheaper than most POTS options.

If your home number is bundled with your cable or internet, however, it might not be costing you that much. Or, to think about it another way, you might not save anything by unbundling it from your service plan. It's worth a phone call to find out.

Maybe you've been thinking about cutting the cord anyway? If you're ditching two out of your three bundled services, now you're probably looking at a lower monthly bill. (Not in the mood to haggle with your cable company? A service such as BillFixers, Billshark or Shrinkabill will do it for you -- for a fee, of course.)

Why Google Voice?

What's the advantage of moving your home number to Google Voice? For starters, it's free -- at least, it has been since 2009. Is there a chance Google could start charging for it? Absolutely, but you can cross that bridge when you come to it.

The key advantage to Google Voice is its versatility. You can route incoming calls to one or more other numbers -- like, say, every family member's mobile phone. That means you can receive home-phone calls even when you're not home.

You can also set up voicemail so that messages are transcribed to text messages or delivered by email. There's even a call-recording option, though it only works for incoming calls. 

OK, but does all this mean you can no longer use the cordless phone system that's been a household staple for all these years? Actually, it's possible to keep that hardware in the loop -- keep reading to find out how.

Why not Google Voice?

There's one important concern: You can't use Google Voice for 911 calls. So although you're keeping your number, giving up your landline means you'll need to use your mobile phone or some other method to dial emergency services.

Also, if you currently have a Google Voice number that you're using for other purposes, porting your landline will override that number. (If that's the case, it might be better to set up a new account with a new Google Voice number that you won't mind losing.)

Can you make the move?

There's a bit of a technical hurdle to moving your home phone number to Google Voice: The service can't port in numbers from landlines or VoIP services. (But you should still check Google's number-porting page to see if maybe your number is already eligible.)

It can port numbers from mobile carriers, though. So the trick is to first move your landline number to a mobile carrier, then move it to Google Voice.

By all accounts, the best way to do that is to buy a T-Mobile SIM card, create a new account, port the landline number to that account, then make your move to Google Voice.

Rather than walk you through each step of that process, I'm going to send you to Obihai's straightforward tutorial for porting a nonmobile number to Google Voice. And the reason I've chosen that particular tutorial is that Obihai also makes an inexpensive device you might find useful after the switch. See the next section for further details.

Once you get your landline number transferred to a mobile carrier, Google charges a one-time $20 porting-in fee. Before you perform that final step, you'll need to make sure your Google Voice number is linked to a phone number other than your landline. (You link numbers in the Google Voice settings. I recommend linking to your mobile phone, at least for now.)

OK, it's ported to Google Voice -- now what?

obihai-obi200.jpg

After the porting process is complete, you'll want to return to settings and forward incoming calls to one or more other numbers. (This could include an office line, for example, but most likely you'll want calls to go straight to your cell, and maybe other family members' as well.)

Another option: Let calls to your landline number ring your cordless phone system, just like they did before. You can do this by installing an Obihai adapter such as the popular Obi200 ($50 at Amazon). It plugs into your router, much like the aforementioned Ooma, then your phone system's base station plugs into the adapter. Now you can do incoming and outgoing calls pretty much the same as always -- but without monthly fees.

If you've already made the move from landline to Google Voice, hit the comments and share your experiences.

How to Port Your Phone Number to Google Voice
How to port number to Google Voice and why should you do it?

Google Voice, which was released in 2009, is a Voice over Internet Protocol phone service that allows one to make and receive calls and even send texts. When you sign up for the service, you will get a Voice number that you can use. However, you may want to use your current mobile phone number for this service. To do this, you will have to port phone number to Google Voice. Here is an easy step-wise guide on how to port number to Google Voice and why you should do it.

port number to Google Voice

Google Voice gives you a phone number for calling, text messaging, and voicemail. It works on smartphones and computers, and syncs across your devices so you can use the app in the office, at home, or on the go.

At the moment, the telephone service only works for personal Google accounts in the U.S. and G Suite accounts in select markets. When you sign up, the service gives you a phone no. for calling, texting, and voicemails.

How to port landline to Google Voice

Can I port landline to Google Voice? No, but there is a way to go about this. Although the service does not allow you to port numbers from landlines or other Voice over Internet Protocol services, there is a way to port your landline to the telephone service.

To do this, you will have to first move the landline number to a mobile carrier; then you can port it to Google Voice.

However, before you do this, you need to check the eligibility of the number with a Google Voice eligibility tool. Do this to see if the home no. can be ported into Google Voice after it is ported to a mobile carrier.

Once you input the home number into the eligibility tool, you will get either one of these two responses:

  • This number appears to be from a carrier we don't support - This is good, as it means that your landline no. most likely will be eligible to port to G.V. after your port it to a cell carrier
  • This number is from an area we don't support - This is bad, as there is nothing you can do to make it eligible for the online telephone service.

Unlock Google Voice Number for Porting Out To Another Carrier

Beginning of the 70s of the now last 20th century, before that I passed a military medical examination, which recognized me as fit for military service for health reasons, and received a certificate from the military enlistment office. When thinking about the army, I had a feeling of some anxiety in my soul, on the one hand, I, like most of my peers, wanted to test myself.

And go through a soldier's school of courage, and on the other hand, it was a little scary if I could withstand this exam with dignity. I was not afraid of physical activity or the upcoming harsh army life, I was afraid of the "hazing" that flourished in the Soviet army in those years. For demographic reasons, due to a shortage of conscripts, people with previous convictions began to be recruited into the service, and they, along with them, introduced.
