Frequently asked questions

Can we transfer the number we had with Zipwhip connected to our landline?

Skipio can likely provide hosted SMS with your landline, though certain carriers do not allow it.

How long does it take to get our number transferred?

The timeline is dependent on both Zipwhip and the carrier. It could be anywhere from 2–4 weeks.

Can you transfer my number first, before I sign up?

Unfortunately, no. Because there are fees and labor associated with porting, you’ll need your account created and paid for before the transfer can begin. You’ll receive a temporary number in Skipio until your Zipwhip number has been ported.

After I sign up, how do I start the transfer process?

We’ll provide you with a porting request form.

I registered and paid for 10DLC with Zipwhip, do I have to pay that again?

If you are transferring your number, you do not have to register and pay for 10DLC Registration again. Please pick a temporary number and we will transfer your registration once we have the number.

Do you have a trial so I can test the product?
