Kiwilink VoIP Number Porting
You can bring your current number to Kiwilink as long as it is in a supported calling region. You should note that when you port a number the line the number is associated with will be cancelled* as part of the porting process and you will no longer receive an invoice from your current provider for this line. Please do not contact your current provider and ask for the line to be cancelled.
If you have any linked numbers or ’stepper’ lines associated with the number you wish to port then please contact your current provider and ask for these to be detatched from your number port or cancelled. You may also port these additional lines over to Kiwilink if you wish. The porting process will fail if you port a number that is still linked to another number that is not being ported, which will cause further delays for the number transfer request.
*Your existing broadband service may require you to have a phone line for service - please check your service requirements before choosing which numbers to port.
