Will the Mobile Port-in request work from overseas?

Postby dutter » 08/25/2021

Can I submit a port-in request from UAE?

Does the existing carrier send a SMS or a phone call to verify the transfer out request?

Thanks

It is possible, but not recommended, in case something does go wrong.

The existing carrier insisting upon a SMS is a good example.

I would talk to your existing carrier on options.

"Your current wireless provider may call or text you to authorize the number transfer. Please respond within 30 minutes to authorize the number transfer. Failure to do so may result in a rejection of transfer.

The messages from the current provider are typically sent immediately after they receive the number transfer request or between 10:00am and 12:00pm on the next business day. You may also call your current provider to authorize the number transfer, a list of numbers is provided at the bottom of this article."
