Forwarding during number transfer?


I’m transferring my landline number to my RW phone. The instructions say forwarding should be off before starting the transfer, but it looks like the process is going to take at least three days. Do I need to leave forwarding off the whole time?


There is no time where the number is inactive. Your landline will remain active until the moment the number transfers to Republic, so there is no need for forwarding.


The losing carrier may deny the port if the number is set to forward. That is why we make that recommendation. They may not choose to deny the transfer but they have the right to do so if forwarding is turned on.
