Toll Free Number Portability

Why is there a "Number Unlock Fee" to port-out Vanity Toll-Free Numbers (ordered after 1/24/14) to a third-party provider?
Since 2012, Callcentric has been providing a 100% FREE Vanity TF Search/Attainment Service to all of its customers. To search and attain Vanity TF Numbers requires manual interaction from Callcentric personel to take, process, and fulfill each order; which creates additional overhead for Callcentric as a company.

This service was originally launched to add value for our customers; however unfortunately we have seen a pattern of "abuse" in which customers come to Callcentric with the sole intent of using our Free Vanity Search/Attainment Service to attain the best numbers possible for "FREE" and then immediately port them to a third-party provider. In these instances both Callcentric and it's customers' lose as these "orders" create overhead financially and also tie-up support agents from addressing other tickets.

As such, unfortunately the "Number Unlock Fee" had to be instituted as a mechanism to prevent "abuse" in order to ensure the best possible customer support experience for our valued customers.
