Porting Requirements (To Be Considered Before Porting Out Your Phone Number)

If you are looking to port your number to KrispCall, there are a few things that are required for that process. Here’s a detailed explanation of each of those:

Porting Requirements (To Be Considered Before Porting Out Your Phone Number)

1. The Number Must Be Portable

You need to make sure that the number you are trying to transfer is portable. It is to be noted that not all numbers are portable, and there are various reasons for that. So, it is best to contact O2’s support and get the information about it.

To check the porting possibility of your number, you can use KrispCall’s Number Porting Eligibility Checker Tool to look into it.

2. The Number Must be Active

As a mandatory requirement, you also need to make sure that the number you are trying to port over is active and is currently in use. This means your account associated with the phone number is also active and not deactivated/disconnected/suspended.

This is a must, as inactive or disabled numbers just cannot be ported.

3. The Device Should Be Unlocked

Many providers in the UK lock certain devices to their networks, making them unusable to be with other networks. You have to make sure that the device you plan to keep is not locked to O2’s services. Likewise, if it is so, you have to get in touch with O2’s support to get it to unlock it and then start the porting process.

Upon request, O2 should send you a code to unlock the device or do it themselves. Then again, it must be noted that there can be a waiting period and/or a fee to do so.

4. Clear Outstanding Payments

You must take into account that if you wish to port your number to KrispCall, all of your bills (final bill amount, any late fees, call charges, charges for exceeding data, or contractual obligations) must be clear and complete.

In the event that any of those are outstanding or uncleared, your O2 number cannot be ported to KrispCall. Once you clear those, you can start the porting process.
