Porting Singapore phone numbers

In Singapore, Symbio offers porting for Level 6 (PSTN) phone numbers.

General porting requirements:

  • The full list of numbers that you wish to port in E164 format.
  • Number Portability Application signed by the authorised user and/or owner or the number(s).
  • For Level 6 numbers the Authorised Officer must be Singapore-based, as an international address is not sufficient.

Process:

  1. Porting request with all requirements in place, and send to orders@symbioenterprise.com.sg
  2. The porting request is reviewed by Symbio. This can take up to 24 business hours. Your request is then submitted to your soon-to-be former carrier as a port request. During this time, do not close your account with your carrier and keep your numbers active.
  3. Symbio reaches out to the Losing Carrier. This can take around one week to complete.
  4. Response from the carrier. At this point, your request will either be approved or rejected:

    Approved: If approved, you will receive a porting date of when your number will be ported to Symbio for use with Twilio.

    Rejected: Rejections can occur for a variety of reasons, such as an incorrect PIN for an account, an address or zip code that doesn’t match the current carrier’s record or a port request made by an unauthorized user on the account.

    Additionally, you will likely need to reach out to your losing carrier to find out what’s needed to move forward. Depending on the needs of the carrier, this will add an undetermined amount of time to your porting request.
  5. Symbio reaches out to you with your porting date. Symbio will email you of your porting date for when your number will be transferred to Symbio for use with Twilio. Once your porting date has passed, and you’ve verified the number has transferred to your Twilio project, you can begin using your number. Please configure your number at this time.
  6. Configure your number. It is critical to set up the URL in advance of the port date so that everything is ready for when traffic ports over to Twilio. You can configure the numbers from your Twilio account portal.
