Does Ooma own my ported number?

Post by Pandora » Wed Mar 18, 2009 11:58 am

I'd like to know who owns my number after it is ported into Ooma? Is it still in my name? Can it be ported out at a later time? Will Ooma charge a fee to release my number?

Right now Ooma looks great. I've had my phone for many years and do not wish to lose my number. I want to make certain if there ever is a problem that my number can be saved for use on another provider if necessary.

The number is hosted and routed to ooma but the number belongs to you. You can choose to port your number away from ooma at any time -- there is no fee to do so.

Thank you so much. I now will begin to port my very old and very dear number to Ooma, knowing if anything happens, it will still be mine.
