Check Number Portability with the Telnyx Mission Control Portal
Are you looking to switch your communication provider, but the idea of changing your phone numbers is just too much to handle? We’ve got you covered. With the Telnyx phone number portability check, you can easily check up to 2,500 numbers at once.

What is Number Porting?

Number porting refers to the process of transferring (porting) a phone number from one provider to another. The process can be broken down into two categories, local number porting, which deals with fixed lines, and full mobile number porting, which deals with transferring mobile numbers.
With number porting, businesses are no longer forced to stay with their communication providers to avoid the hassle of switching their phone numbers. Number portability puts the power back into the hand of the customer. So, how do you know whether or not your current number is eligible for porting?
