    Possible Port Rejection Reasons

    While we do our best to prevent it, it does sometimes happen that a port request is rejected. The most common rejection reasons are noted below. As you can see, details matter and this is why we ask you to triple-check all the information you provided before submitting your port request. 

    • Incorrect end user name
    • Incorrect service address
    • Incorrect or missing wholesale account number
    • Requested number is part of a range of DIDs
    • Number is not active

    Porting Checklist

    • LOA is filled out, dated, and signed
    • Latest invoice from current carrier
    • All numbers are active with your current carrier
    • All numbers in your account are porting over or you’ve disassociated them from the other numbers in your account with your current provider
    • You’ve provided a desired port date in compliance with the SLT (*Dialpad will do its best to meet this date but there is no guarantee.) If no date is provided we will port the numbers ASAP.
