Most importantly, it’s free to port as many numbers as you want into and out of Twilio.

Porting Numbers from Google Voice to Twilio

Google Voice phone numbers can be ported into Twilio by completing these simple steps:

  1. To begin the porting process, please log into your account and go to the porting page
  2. Fill out the form, providing phone number type, phone numbers, and billing account info
  3. Fill out the Letter of Authorization that permits us to port your number on your behalf
  4. Provide a screenshot of your Google Voice account, and make sure the first/last name you provide on the Letter of Authorization match your Google account exactly
  5. After we’ve received all documents from you, the process takes 2-4 weeks to complete the port.   Your number will not experience any downtime, and you will be notified when the port completes.
