Getting a new number Vs posting an existing number: The differences
Getting a new phone number is good for a fresh start, whether a personal or a business. A new number isn’t an ideal option for already established businesses.
In both cases, you get to incorporate and relish the features in your communications. However, porting facilitates you to keep your existing customers intact without putting in the extra effort.
