Port home phone number

SOLVED Go to solution
Level 1b

I had my NBN installation activated last week, which was all fine. No issues there. 


As part of the original registration process though I requested my home phone number be ported to TPG from Telstra. When I click on the "View NBN Digital Voice Service Account" link from my account page, there is a different phone number. It's been over a week now, when will my original number be ported?

Yo @smithdg. I believe it's up to 5 working days max to port your number. If you have a different number allocated when visit 'View NBN Digital Voice Service Account' then probably your number was not ported. 

Look at this thread. You guys have almost the same inquiry.

I too have just signed up for NBN and requested my home phone be ported. I have a totally different number allocated to me. I have had my home phone number for over 13 yrs. I also requested my Mobile be ported to take advantage of the first 3 maths free. This also has not been done. I am due to be connected on 28.6.18.....thinking of cancelling everything. Very disappointed.

The porting of my home phone has failed again. Your tech team advised to turn the modem off and on. Still just getting a message when you ring it saying "lnvalid number".
I am very disappointed that you still have not ported my number. Can someone please help?

Good day @mc,


Can you please shoot me a private message of the phone number that you want to be ported? We just want to verify that the correct number has been ported on your account.


Kind regards,
