Now that you've reviewed the process to port out your Sideline number, you're probably wondering how long it takes to complete. Here are some things to consider:
- Generally, the winning carrier (where you're porting your number out TO) controls the time it takes to complete the port
- Our role, as the losing carrier (where you're porting your number out FROM - Sideline) is to verify that you've requested the port out process to begin
- Once you've provided the gaining carrier with the Account and PIN numbers, it's all in their hands! From what we've seen, it can be anywhere from 2 hours to 7 days
To receive a more accurate estimate, we would suggest reaching out to the carrier/service you're porting your number to and ask for their approximation.
