Can I keep my number?

Okay now we start this week with some the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about VoIP. Probably the number one concern with most people who are thinking about switching to a Voice Over IP provider is "Can I keep my number?" The answer is yes!! Usually most providers will assign you a temporary number to your box at first. Then you will simply fill out a form for the new provider who will use that to get the number from you existing phone company. This is called porting your number. If you are planning to port your number to NOT cancel your existing service right away. Wait until you get confirmation from your VoIP provider that they have ported your number. Otherwise your current phone company may give you number away to someone else. It is pretty much the same process if you are afraid you may go back to the standard land line after VoIP. So there are no worries, if you take the proper steps, about losing your number.
