Transfer your local number between VoIP providers. As of November 2007, all VoIP and phone services must let you port your number to a new VoIP or phone service if you remain in the same geographic location (same area code).
Inform your current VoIP or telephone service provider that you are porting your number to a different service. The port must be made in one business day, according to FCC regulations.
Local number portability is now mandatory. Number portability is a feature if you own a virtual number or other numbers via area code selection.
