What is Phone Number Porting?
Number porting, also known as 'Transferring your number' means that you are taking an existing phone number from one provider and transferring it to another. If you have just ordered HughesNet Voice, you may be eligible to transfer your number from your previous carrier to HughesNet Voice. To determine eligibility, call Customer Care at 866-347-3292. You will need to provide your Site Account Number (SAN) found on your monthly invoice, as well as your existing telephone number. If you have already cancelled service with your previous carrier, you will not be able to transfer your number to HughesNet Voice.
Can Hughes request my number transfer (number porting) for me?
Unfortunately, no. It is an important FCC regulation that you, as the owner of the phone number, be the person to authorize a transfer request. You can start the request by going to myHughesNet.com. Click on My Services, then click on Manage next to your voice service plan.
