In order for us to process a request to bring your number from another provider, the phone number(s) must be currently working. Contact us and we'll let you know if we can transfer your current number.

Keep Your Existing Phone Number

You should be able to keep your phone number at no additional charge if you're switching your service within the same location. However, when you move to a new location, it's not always possible to keep the same number. To find out if you can keep your current number, contact us.

Who Can Order?

Any individual over 18, or business, located in an area where we offer phone service can order the service.

You may qualify for a discounted package that combines Spectrum Voice with our other services.

  • If we can bring your number over from your current provider, we'll take care of everything for you. We don't charge any switching fees. If you cancel your service prior to contacting us, you may not be able to keep your current number. Please note that you may be responsible to your old service provider for any contractual requirements and applicable charges.
  • If you're planning on getting a new phone number, or we can't bring your current phone number over to Spectrum, you'll need to contact your current provider and cancel your existing phone service.
  • If you have a long-distance provider that's different than your local service provider and you choose a long-distance package, you'll need to contact your long-distance provider and cancel your long-distance service. We can't cancel your long-distance service if it's different from your local service provider.
