Fix issues with your number transfer to Google Fi

If you have problems transferring your number to Google Fi, use this article to help troubleshoot.

Troubleshoot "Couldn't transfer your number" error

If your number transfer doesn't go through, you should get a notification in the Google Fi app that tells you what to do.

When you get an error message, it’s often because of incorrect or incomplete account information. To update your information, follow the instructions in the error message.

To make sure you provided the correct information, check with your carrier.

Information that may show up as an error:

  • Typos
  • Incorrect account numbers or PIN
  • Account numbers with dashes
    • Tip: Try to enter your account number without any dashes.
  • Incorrect zip codes

You can check with your last carrier for the most recent info.

After you start the number transfer, you may get a text message from AT&T that asks you to confirm the transfer. Once you respond to the text message, try the number transfer again.

Prepare your contacts & messages

If you keep your current phone, the transfer doesn’t affect your contacts and messages.

Manage a "Contact us" notification

Find out how long a number transfer takes

You can start your number transfer once you have your phone.

Mobile numbers and numbers from Google Voice usually transfer within the first 3 hours.

Landlines usually transfer within 2 business days.

Important: If your number transfer takes longer than 3 hours, before you contact a Google Fi agent, contact your last carrier and find out:

  • The port’s status.
  • The cause of delay.
  • If your last carrier has already responded, confirm the date and time of the response. 

To check whether the transfer is successful, check your Google Fi app.

If issues continue, contact a Google Fi expert.

Learn why some features don’t work after a transfer

Some features might not work right after your transfer completes. There might be a short period before you can send and receive text messages.
