Can I Transfer a Deactivated Phone Number?

 

Environment

  • Phone number is deactivated
  • Number request to port out to a new carrier or port into Republic Wireless

Answer

No, deactivated phone numbers cannot be transferred to other providers. Only active phone numbers can be transferred.

Additional Notes

To facilitate the transfer the number will first need to be re-activated with the previous provider. If your Republic Wireless number was canceled within the past 30 days, we may be able to recover the number.  You will need to re-activate the phone with a new number then open a help ticket to request the desired number be restored.
