Opening a ticket with the Porting department is the correct thing to do

What are the next steps when the number is ported? How can I move this number to Telkom?

Hi CardCo

If a number is ported to FreshPHONE, then you can now receive calls on it through FreshPHONE. You can port this number to Telkom after porting it to us, there is a minimum freeze period between porting a number just after you have ported it of 3 months until you can port again

I followed the above process, made payment to Port my Neotel number, the next page FROZE and could not complete the process, Whats needs to be done to get the process completed again. 

I have opened a Ticket with the Port Department and still they have come back to me.

Asssist with a link to complete the process.

Yes indeed please assist.

So this means we can no longer port our number?

Correct, your Prepaid Neotel line can no longer be ported

Thank you, they sent the Link to continue with the process and was done successfully.


Neotel are no longer accepting any ports
