What happens before the port is complete?

Your number will continue to go through your existing phone lines until the port is complete. Please ensure you keep your current phone account active until the port is confirmed by us. 

We will contact you during the porting period to give you an approximate date and time for the change to happen.

Does it cost anything?

The porting service costs 

  • $15 for New Zealand landline numbers 
  • $20 for Australian, US, Canada and UK numbers

What happens once the port is complete?

Your phone number will show up in your Cradle account under Numbers. You will need to assign the number to an office so that any incoming calls will start to use the routing for that office.

  1. Click on the number
  2. Select an office

You can assign this number as the primary outbound number for your users. 

  1. Click on Users 
  2. Select a user
  3. Adjust the outbound number to suit.

Your current provider will probably charge you a final invoice, and then close your account, but we recommend verifying this with them. Please remember to keep service active with your current provider until the port is complete and we confirm this with you.
