NOTE: There are exceptional rare cases where we are not able to port a number in given the numbers "rate center". A phone number's Rate Center is determined by both the area code and then next three digits. (area code / prefix combination). We urge you not to print, publish or otherwise promote your ported number until after the ported number is active within your account.
Do know we are constantly looking to expand our coverage. But if your phone number is unable to be ported. In the meantime, you can certainly try to port that number to another provider and then have that number forwarded to REI BlackBook. Just be aware that you might be faced with the same issue with another provider. You can search for a local number that we provide in that same Area Code.
