You probably rely heavily on your phones to conduct business, so the last thing you need is to have to change your phone numbers and confuse your customers.

Luckily you don’t have to! Number porting is all part of the process when switching to a hosted VoIP provider. Here are some tips for a smooth transition…

  1. Find a provider that understands number porting, and make sure they know which numbers you intend to take with you.

So have no fear, you can keep your phone numbers.
