Engage Voice
Porting phone numbers to RingCentral Office

Engage Voice has the capability to host its own phone numbers to process calls, and this is how it is set up for some users. If you are currently using phone numbers hosted in Engage Voice to process your calls, but you wish for RingCentral Office to manage them instead, you may migrate your phone numbers from Engage Voice to RingCentral Office.
 
When you submit a porting or number transfer request, the information needed to port your number will be collected, including the number you are porting and your physical address (no P.O. boxes). Porting may take up to 30 or more business days. 
 
Below are the requirements for porting your numbers to RingCentral Office:
  • The number to be transferred should be active 
  • Latest bill from Engage Voice for the number you are transferring
  • RingCentral phones should have been received and set up. Exemption: If you are using existing phones or using these numbers strictly to forward calls to existing phones
  • No open orders with Engage Voice
  • Letter of Authorization (LOA) and proof of address if you are transferring international numbers

You must also add a temporary number to your RingCentral account as a placeholder for the number you are porting. To add a temporary number, visit Purchasing phone numbers in RingCentral Office
