I will be moving from my current home to my parents home while my new home is under construction. How can I keep my home phone number while my new home is being built? I may be without a home for about six months.
The Temporary Change in Service that people use while on vacation should work?
I would recommend transferring your phone number to your parents' house. You could have an installer dedicate one of the phone jacks in their house to your number and this way, you wouldn't miss a call. On their account, it would show up as a secondary line for a small fee.
Once your house is complete, you could then transfer it to there as the primary number.
Can phone numbers now be transfered between Shaw accounts? Last time I wanted to do this, the only solution was to port the number out, and then back to Shaw.
Oops, you're right, Kevin. Sorry for the wrong info.
Kevin is correct that our system doesn't allow us to port phone numbers from one customer to another. In this case, you could transfer your phone account to your parents' house. We would still have an installer dedicate one of the phone jacks in their house to your number and again, you wouldn't miss a call. But at their house, it would show as a separate phone account rather than a secondary number on their own account.
But as per Kevin's suggestion of putting your account on Temporary Change in Service (TCIS), we could keep the voicemail active for a small charge and you could access messages by calling your phone number and entering the voicemail access code.
