Porting out Question---I want to port out my number but keep Cox Phone (will it assign a new number?)
I get too many bogus calls on my home phone. I don't want it ringing all over my house waking people up.
But I want to keep COX phone service because of my (monitored) alarm system requirements.
Porting out Question---
I want to port out my number but keep Cox Phone service. I have had this number for 20 years and some of my older friends and relatives occasionally use it.
Will Cox allow a port out of my current Cox number, then assign a new number to my home phone (because I don't want to cancel phone service).
If so, how do I request that from Cox?
(I realize that when I am ready to port out, I need to keep my phone number active, and go to my new carrier and request the port out, and then wait for the port-out to be effective). But will Cox just cancel phone?
(FYI, I have internet service too with Cox, which I am also keeping).
I realize most times that people port-out, they want to cancel the phone service with the original provider. That is not me.
Please let me know if what I want is possible, and how.
