Use BasicTalk™ During a Number Transfer

Once you set up your BasicTalk Box™, you can make and receive calls even if you are transferring your phone number.  Your number transfer can take up to 10 days to complete and during this time you are assigned a temporary phone number.  This temporary phone number is automatically removed once the number transfer completes.
