How long does it take to port my number to GoFax?

Fax number porting times can vary depending on the type of number being ported and carrier to carrier processes. Generally, most number ports are completed within 1-3 weeks. 

Some factors such as number type or port rejections can affect the ability to port and port completion times. 

CAT A (Simple) number port can take up to 30 days, however, are generally completed much quicker. 

CAT C (Complex) number ports can take up to 120 days, however, are generally completed much quicker. 

We recommend getting in touch with your existing provider to review portability on your existing fax number 👍.

If your number is portable, once you have set up a GoFax account and purchased a suitable plan, you can complete and return the GoFax Porting Authority to get your port underway.
