How to port your phone number from Google Voice

Looking to port your number away from Google Voice? You can port your phone number from Google Voice in four simple steps.

Porting your number from Google Voice

If you have more than one number, you'll need to select the number you wish to port from Google Voice in the dropdown menu and then click “Unlock my number”.

  1. You’ll be prompted then to pay a $3.00 fee to port your Google Voice number to another provider. The pop-up message also states all of your messages will remain in your Google Voice account after your phone has been ported away.

  2. Pay the fee in Google Pay. The receipt for that fee will be emailed to the email address Google has on file.
