    Ringto to close 3/31/2018

    Ring.to has posted on home page that will be closing 3/31/2018. All phone lines must be ported out by that date or you will lose the phone number. Ringto gives some suggestions for providers to port to.

    There is also discussion of options at dslreports. Have not checked redit.

    RingTo was an excellent product. I’ll miss it.

    RINGTO IS SAYING GOODBYE

    It's been a pleasure working with customers like you these last few years on RingTo. While we've learned a lot over the course of our journey with RingTo, we're focusing our ongoing development elsewhere. So with that said, we'll cut to the chase here: we are sunsetting RingTo on 3/31/2018.

    The good news: as the end-user of your number, you are free to port that number to any landline, wireless or VoIP service provider.
    Don't know any other service providers? We've partnered with a replacement who is ready and excited to get started with you. Here's a bit of information about them, as well as a link so that you can get started transitioning if you're a current customer:

    SideLine
    Sideline® is more than a 2nd number. It's a communication app that helps you work efficiently, connect with customers, and collaborate as a team. Professionals choose Sideline for its unmatched reliability and feature-rich interface that separates work from life. It comes with all the calling, texting, and voicemail features you need to start, run, or grow your business.

    Start your free trial today!

    Alternatively, If you'd prefer to not go with either of those options, you can always port your number to another landline or VoIP service provider as well.

    I am looking for a FREE place to port my two number from RingTo.

    I do not need dial-out capabilities. These two lines are for incoming calls only, and I only need voicemail to record the incoming messages.

    Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

    I started this thread last week:
    http://www.howardforums.com/showthre...e-or-Talkatone

    I actually ported my RingTo number to MetroPCS, but don’t really want to pay for said number (I use it so infrequently, but I’ve had the number for 15 years). Unless there’s a better alternative, I’m going to port my number to Google Voice, then to Talkatone. It’ll cost $23 total one time to do.

    I could just leave it parked with GV, but I want something that works as simply as RingTo. I don’t want to deal with Gmail, Hangouts, etc. Talkatone seems to work pretty smoothly. I actually like TextNow better, but there didn’t seem to be a way to port a number to them for use with their app. I emailed them last week and asked, but haven’t received a reply yet, so I take it that the answer is “No.”.

    I tried to port my number to TextNow but I could not find a way to do it. It looks like they don't support it for their free plans. Only for wireless plans.

    Did you actually contact TextNow to find out if it possible?
    Unlike many TF Inc. Subs in recent weeks and now months, TF Inc. not showing much love to their TF service customers.

    I did NOT actually contact TextNow. I just looked around their web site. Nothing found.

    This post is nearly three years old but it's worth a shot to contact the guy.
    Our free app on iOS and Android is essentially a WiFi only plan without a monthly service fee. If you want to port in your number without buying a device/plan I can arrange that for you for a small fee.

    Email me at derek at enflick dot com.

    I really enjoyed using RingTo. I have 5 numbers left there and had been using them regularly. I will miss this service.

    Bummer, I have 3 numbers that I used as junk/spam backups. Nobody else offers this service for free.

    There are a lot of voip vendors out there. At least 60... But who has time to investigate them all?

    I was hoping someone who knows of a free one with free porting would point it out to us.

    TextNow offers a free service, but no way to port numbers to them. So they are out.

    I am going to sit tight and hope someone will provide a answer before the deadline.

    Otherwise, I will just let my two numbers go.

    I don't know too much about this stuff because I've been all-in with Google Voice / Obihai / Hangouts since 2009, but for those that don't want to use Google Voice, would any services listed as "Free VoIP Networks" at https://www.voip-info.org/wiki/view/Free+VoIP+Networks be of any use to those looking to move from RingTo?

    Thanks for that link. There are a lot of vendors on it. Too many for me to check out. Interesting that Google Voice is not on the list. Google voice would be perfect, except for the $20 port charge. My numbers are not worth $20. So I am looking for free or I will just return the numbers to the pool.
