Frequently Asked Questions

Does Grasshopper replace my service provider?

Grasshopper is a virtual phone system that provides a number of great features, but you still need a service provider, over whose network your calls will be made.

How long does it take to port a mobile number?

It varies depending on your situation and the service through which you currently have the number. A couple business days is common, but it could take up to two weeks. We know waiting is tough, but it’s worth it!

Can I port toll-free numbers?

You sure can. Once you submit your transfer request, we take it from there and work with your current service provider to handle everything. And of course, your number is yours to keep, even if you decide to change again in the future.

How much does it cost to port my number?

We charge a one-time $30 fee to port your number to Grasshopper. Be sure to check with your current service as well, for any fees they may charge.
