If you are porting in to RingCentral

If you are transferring more than 100 numbers from the same carrier, please let us know here as we assist with project-based porting. Your number must be active with your provider in order for it to be transferred to RingCentral. You may cancel your phone service after the transfer is complete.


Porting time is from Monday to Friday, between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM in the country of origin. The porting window is 0-3 hours. This process usually takes around 30 business days to complete after you’ve submitted your request through your RingCentral account. However, the timing may depend on your current service provider or the complexity of the request.
To avoid delaying the process, it’s best to initiate the port before you cancel your account with your current provider. You will need to cancel your previous service after your number has been transferred. Transferring your phone number may cause your carrier to automatically cancel. Check with your current carrier.
