Porting From Straight Talk Home Phone Service
I'm new to the forums so I'm not sure if this has been asked before. Has anyone tried (or is it even possible) to port a number in to Spectrum Home Phone from Straight Talk's Home Phone service? In all actuality, the Straight Talk home phone number is just on the Verizon Wireless network as a mobile line, and uses a wireless router to convert the signal to be used with traditional home phone equipment.
There is no option under the porting choices to select Straight Talk, which is amazing since it seems that there is every other company imaginable (both landline and wireless) listed to port a number from. The "account" number for Straight Talk is actually the IMEI number, and the Spectrum order system wouldn't accept that many digits when I tried to see if selecting Verizon Wireless as the current carrier would work.
Am I out of luck here? Do I need to port my number to a different provider first and then try to port into Spectrum Home Phone? It seems like a lot of steps to bring a number over. Why wouldn't they be able to port in from Straight Talk or any other Tracfone-owned brand?
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
