With this guide, we aim to walk you through the process of porting your Vodafone UK phone number to KrispCall and make it more streamlined. Also, we’ll walk you through the steps and requirements to ensure a smooth transition to KrispCall’s cloud phone system.

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

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

There are several things to consider before you begin the porting process. Below are some of the most important things to consider and look into when making your decision:

1. The Number Must Be Portable

The first requirement is that the number you are trying to port must be portable, meaning it can be transferred to KrispCall. And as not all phone numbers can be ported, it is important that you contact Vodafone UK directly before you start the number porting process.

You can conveniently quickly test and check the porting eligibility of your phone number with KrispCall’s Number Porting Eligibility Checker.

2. The Number Must be Active

The next requirement is to make sure the number you are trying to port is active and in use at the time of porting to make the process go smoothly. 

That is because any number that has been disconnected or is deactivated cannot be ported. And if any of these said conditions are there and met, then porting cannot be done.

3. The Device Should Be Unlocked

You also need to make sure that the device you are currently using is not bound to be used only with Vodafone UK’s services.

And if your phone is locked to Vodafone UK, you will have to unlock it so that it can be used with other phone services as well. To unlock it, you just have to reach out to Vodafone UK’s support, and they will usually unlock your phone upon request. But you should remember that there might be a fee or waiting period involved in unlocking your device.

4. Clear Outstanding Payments

Another requirement is that before beginning the process of number porting, you need to make sure all outstanding payments with Vodafone are settled. This includes any pending bills, any pending bills, any late fees, any call/data charges, or contractual obligations to avoid any issues during the porting process.

If you have any of those outstanding, you won’t be able to port your Vodafone UK number to KrispCall.

5. Submission of Necessary Documents & Information

Lastly, in terms of requirements needed to begin the porting process, you will have to provide some documents and information to KrispCall:

  • Letter of Authorization (LOA) issued within the last 30 days.
  • Customer Service Record (CSR).
  • 6-digit Number Transfer PIN (Porting Authorisation Code, PAC).
  • Phone Bill.

Be sure all the information in these documents is correct and up-to-date before submitting them.

Information and Document Requirements (For UK Local, National & Toll-free Phone Numbers)

Now, if you wish to port a UK local, national, or toll-free phone number to KrispCall, you will need to provide the following information and documents:

1. Phone Numbers

This is the phone number (or list of numbers) of your Vodafone UK that you wish to transfer to KrispCall. You have to identify it and find out whether it’s local (specific area code), national (reachable from anywhere in the UK), or toll-free (numbers with prefixes like 0800).

Next provide the information about those in an entirety. It is usually encoded in the E164 format, which begins with the country code (+44 for the UK), followed by the area code (three to five digits), and then the subscriber number (seven digits).

2. Letter of Authorization (LOA)

Next, you’ll have to provide a LOA, which was dated no more than 30 days ago. Letters of Authorization are necessary because they prove ownership of the number and provide everything required for the number to be successfully ported and transferred. Additionally, this document authorizes the new provider to initiate the porting process on your behalf. 

The following are some considerations you should take into account when dealing with a letter of authorization:

  • Letter of Authorization dated within the last 30 days. If you want to port both Geo and Non-Geo numbers, please fill in 2 separate LOAs – one for Geo and one for Non-Geo numbers.
  • LOA should be filled digitally; only the signature can be done by hand.
  • Add the current provider as the “Current Retailer.” Note that you have to indicate a provider that is billing you for the service (it can be either a reseller or a network provider). 
  • Leave the “New Provider” field blank.
  • Email contact of your current provider. 
  • The site address must be in the United Kingdom.

3. Regulatory Compliance

Regulatory Compliance(RC) ensures you meet the legal requirements for ownership of the number you are trying to port all for so as to prevent fraudulent activity.

These are set by government bodies (Ofcom in the UK), and they are generally required to port certain numbers, especially those used for business purposes.

It is necessary to provide a digital or scanned copy of the most recent phone bill before initiating the porting process. It must include accurate information about your address, authorized user name, and account number because it acts as proof that you are the account holder for the phone number you’re trying to port.

Be sure your current Vodafone UK phone account does not have any outstanding payments or dues, so as to avoid any issues during the transfer.

5. Service Address

You also need to provide a service address (where your phone service is linked) that can be located anywhere in the world. This doesn’t affect your ability to port the phone number as long as the billing address (linked to the LOA) is in the UK.

2. Network Provider/RH Blocking The Port

If the phone number you’re trying to port has been disconnected or inactive for a certain period (depending on the Responsible Organization, RHs policy), the porting request will be delayed or rejected. This rejection often occurs due to outstanding balances, contractual obligations, or other restrictions.

3. Incorrect Line Type

Keep in mind that phone lines come in different types, like landlines, mobile numbers, virtual numbers, etc. And each type has a different porting procedure. If the information about the line type you provided during the porting request doesn’t match the actual type on your current carrier’s system, it will be flagged.

4. Incorrect Number Details 

If you provide incorrect number details about the account number, PIN, or other identifying details to KrispCall and they do not match the records of your current carrier, it can result in delays. Ensuring accuracy in these details is crucial to avoid delays.

5. Inactive Number

If the mobile number you are trying to port is inactive or not in service, the porting request is sure to be delayed. In order to port your number smoothly to KrispCall, you need to make sure that it’s an active number and in service.

6. No Service With LCP

Delays due to “No Service with LCP” occur when the Local Control Point (LCP) does not have a service that lets any number be ported. It won’t be possible to port your number if they do not offer such services.

What Are The Common Reasons For A Rejected Port?

  • Incorrect information about the postcode.
  • Single- Vs. Multi-Line Geographic Numbers: If the numbers are associated with each other, they should be ported as a range. Contact your current service provider to determine whether your number is a single-line or multi-line number. 
  • Incorrect Current Provider And/Or Range Holder Information: You may need to get in touch with your current provider and the range holder of your phone number(s).
