How To Forward Your Phone Number

Set It And Forget About It

We wish you could click a button, and your phone number will automatically forward to us. Unfortunately, it’s a little more complicated than that. We provide some of the more common phone carriers instructions below; however, please know that these instructions can change at any time. We have no control over your phone company’s procedures. You may need to contact your phone provider to get more current instructions if the below information doesn’t work. If you find other instructions, please let us know so we can post them for everyone to see.

If you prefer, we can host or port your number at no additional cost. We also offer toll-free numbers such as 800, 866, and 877 numbers. If you are interested in one, please let us know.
