Hi
I know this is sort of swimming against the tide . People going to 2 Degrees but I would like to know how much it costs to take a custom number from 2 Degrees to use on an existing vodafone account.
Thanks

What's the deal with your mobile number? Do you actually own it or does the network own it?

The provider owns it, but you can obviously move it to a different provider and then that provider would own it.

It appears that, while 2Degrees lets you port via their site, the process is paper in-store with Voda, is that correct?

What does Vodafone require to do the port, just the phone number, or do they need proof that you are using the number, such as the 2Degrees sim?

You can port in numbers to Vodafone prepay on the Vodafone NZ site

Process has been in place for a long time about 12 months
