Why isn't my phone number with republic wireless eligible for transfer to Cricket?

I am trying to transfer my number on my republic wireless phone to another service provider, but when the phone guy looks up the eligibility for my number to be transferred, it comes up ineligible. Why is that?

@kennethe.wsa03u

Where are you porting to (cricket)? Some providers refuse to port VOIP lines and RW is considered voip/landline. It takes longer usually and like I said some places refuse to acknowledge the numbers. There is workarounds here are some. hope this helps

I have my reasons for being partial to that one. Besides, I never miss a chance to advertise the wiki.
