How do I transfer my number to Q Link?

Bringing your number to Q Link Wireless is very easy. Just follow the steps below.

1. Eligibility Guidelines To Bring Your Own Number

  • Keep your number active on your current network. Do NOT contact your current provider to deactivate your account before or during the number transfer. This will make your number NOT eligible for transfer.
  • Do NOT have a number transfer initiated with your current provider. If you do, you must call them to cancel it.

2. Information You’ll Need

You’ll need a few pieces of info from your current carrier before you can transfer your number:

  • Your phone number to be transferred
  • The Account Number from your current carrier
  • The PIN Number from your current carrier
  • The primary account’s Owner Full Name
  • Your billing address information from your current carrier

Don’t know this information? Contact your current carrier, or read our guide on where to find your account details from your current carrier.

3. Check Your Number’s Eligibility

To check if your number is eligible to be transferred to Q Link, simply log in to “My Q Link Account” and select “Bring Your Own Number”. Then, enter the phone number you will like to transfer. You’ll get a response right away!

Tip: Checking your numbers eligibility has no impact on your current/existing phone service. So, you will be able to use your number until you authorize us to transfer your number to Q Link Wireless and the transfer is completed.

4. Start Your Number Transfer

Provide your account information to us, and Q Link Wireless will contact your current carrier to complete the transfer.

We recommend waiting until you receive your SIM card or phone before starting a number transfer.

Don’t cancel your current phone service until your new Q Link Wireless account has been activated.

5. What to do if there’s an error

If you encounter an error, it’s usually due to an incorrect PIN Number, incorrect account number, or a mismatch on the Account’s Owner Full Name. You will be notified via email, so you can update the information easily online.
