The local number you receive from Global VRS can be "ported" to another VRS provider. In addition, you can “port” a local number from another VRS provider to Global VRS.
Porting numbers means that the default provider for that telephone number will change and the new VRS provider will be responsible for VRS calls to and from that telephone number, including emergency calls.
WARNING: Please be aware that currently, technical limitations of VRS-based 9-1-1 video calls prevent automatic referral of your location information to 9-1-1 emergency authorities. The need to convey this information manually increases the amount of time for these calls, as well as the risk of error. For this reason, GLOBAL VRS recommends for you to dial 9-1-1 from a TTY or use a traditional TTY relay service to make 9-1-1 calls.
