I had a conversation with an individual who wanted to use call tracking numbers but we ran into an issue. This individual has two numbers he uses for his business. One is a land line that goes into his office and the other is his cell phone. The land line is a number that is established into the community and this is the number he would like to use as the tracking number. We do have the ability to port the number into our system but in doing so caused a problem. Tracking numbers are virtual numbers that do not produce a dial tone. They rely on the numbers they are forwarded to for the connection. He would have needed to order a whole new number from a local provider for this business land line if we ported the number over. While all these things are possible it just takes time. The plan is this: we will port over his main number and forward it to his cell phone while the local carrier gets him a new number for his office.
