What To Expect
When porting a number, the provider through which you currently have service is referred to as the ‘losing’ carrier while the new provider that you're porting a number to is referred to as the ‘winning’ carrier.
All port requests originate from the ‘winning’ carrier (in this case Salesmsg). You cannot initiate a port request from the ‘losing’ carrier. Some information related to your current service will be required.
Keep in mind that at the current time you will lose voice access to that number. You will only be able send text messages from it.
