Keep My Number
In Canada, it is possible to move your telephone number from one service provider to a new service provider because of a process called number portability. Number portability allows individuals and businesses to keep their phone number when switching service providers, as long as the new provider is able to support the technology and features associated with the number.
Number portability was introduced in Canada in the late 1990s by the CRTC in an effort to increase competition among telecommunications companies and give consumers more choice and flexibility in their service providers. It has since become a standard feature of the telecommunications industry in Canada.
To move your phone number to Dolphin Tel, you will need to follow a few steps. First, you will need to sign up for a VoIP service. Next, you will need to request that your phone number be ported over to us using this Porting Request Form. Along with the completed form we will need some documentation, such as proof of ownership of the phone number and a copy of a recent bill from your current provider.
Dolphin Tel will then work with your current provider to complete the porting process, which can take a few days to complete. Once the porting process is complete, your phone number will be transferred to the Dolphin Tel, and you will be able to start using our money saving services with your existing phone number.
Overall, the process of moving your phone number from your old service provider to Dolphin Tel is straightforward and easy to do. It allows you to keep your phone number and avoid the hassle of having to update your contact information with friends, family, and business associates. By taking advantage of number portability, you can easily switch service providers and take advantage of our great plans and services that better meet your needs.
