Free Phone Line Port Out from Sideline

+44 Deal Score
37,589 Views
I have seen a lot of posts about activating new lines for certain deals like credits, rebates, free phones, etc. In most cases people then need to port the number out to avoid a cancellation fee but the port can cost money. I searched and found Sideline which ports your number out for free.

I don't think this would be good for multiple ports but if you are just porting one line out like I was it can work.

Edit: Please note that I made this post as a free option to port out an unwanted number (that I acquired during the recent Target/Verizon new line/gift card promotion) without having to pay a port or cancellation fee. I do not plan on using the sideline service nor do I know how well or poorly it works.

Ringplus.net (free port in promo on occasion) = same as this deal

except, you get cell service too and no $3/month fee

Also sounds like Google Voice.

I can't see where this is better, but maybe it is

such as ringplus? right?

It's important to note with Sideline, you have to use it at least once within 30 days or you could lose your number. It can be a simple text, just to keep the number active. I use it as a additional number for deals.

if I use Sideline and Google voice, I guess I could have 3 lines on one device.

Yes. Sideline will run along side of your carrier minutes/texts.

Link to Porting FAQ [zendesk.com]

This looks to be a great free solution for anyone wanting to port a landline number to Google Voice. First port landline # into Sideline, then port the same # out to Google Voice. Port-in fee from Google Voice still applies.

Can I port a number out of Sideline that I didn't originally port-in?

It depends. Sideline Pro users can port a number out that they did not originally port in. To learn how to sign up for Sideline Pro.
Nothing free about that. Thus, if one wanted a new phone number , to port someplace else, then there is a charge.

Google voice also goes via your carrier.
