Requesting a project port (US, Canada, Puerto Rico)
A project port allows you to move more than 100 pre-existing numbers from another carrier to be used on your Zoom Phone account. Project porting is when you port more than 100 numbers.
Note: If you're having issues during the porting process, see our list of common porting issues and resolutions.
Prerequisites for requesting a project port (US, Canada, Puerto Rico)
- Account owner or admin permissions

You will need to provide the following information:
