Using Ting to "park" a number for eventual GV?

Gordon Hlavenka

I want to port an AT&T landline number to Google Voice.  I'm already a happy Ting customer, using my own GV account for voicemail.

Unfortunately, GV does not support porting from AT&T landlines.  So what I'd like to do is to port the number someplace else, then port it from there into GV.  I am pretty sure there is some amount of waiting period involved; one can't just port willy-nilly like a ping pong ball :-)

So anyway, my plan is to port the landline number to Ting (I already have an extra SIM), leave it there for a month or two (or whatever is required) then port it into GV.  Does anyone see this causing a problem someplace?

    Hi Gordon,

     I don't think there is going to be any problems. It does take a few extra days to port the AT&T landline to Ting but once it's there it should be easy to move it over to Google Voice. If you need a hand with the porting just let us know. We'd be more than happy to help.
