Phone is forwarded. How will this work after my port?

Post by rb9999 » Sat Dec 25, 2010 2:11 pm

I currently have a temporary Ooma number and I have my regular phone forwarded to my Ooma number until the porting is complete. When my porting is completed (I am on Time Warner phone currently) will the forwarding automatically stop? I just don't want to get stuck in a catch 22 where I had to be on Time Warner to cancel the forward.

I want to keep the forward on and was hoping that when the port was actually complete then my Ooma service just starts working on my new (old) number. I won't be home the day of the port and wanted to make it seamless.

Anyone know what will happen if I do nothing?

Yes, just keep it forwarded until port complete. Your old service will stop working and your number will start working on your Ooma device.
