When will my Grasshopper number start working?
Your toll-free or local numbers will most likely be active within minutes of signing up, and you can start using your account right away.
There are a few exceptions to instant activation:
- Custom Toll Free phone numbers can take 1-3 business days to become active. We recommend that you wait until you have tested the new number for functionality before publishing any materials or doing any advertising with it.
- Toll-free numbers you transfer to Grasshopper from other providers can take up to 3- 5 business days to activate, depending on how quickly they're released to Grasshopper.
- Local numbers you transfer to Grasshopper from other providers can take up to 10 business days to transfer.
(If you're porting in a number, you will automatically be assigned a temporary number to set up your account and when the port is successful, we'll swap out the number for the ported in one.)
Pro-tip: Before you market or advertise your Grasshopper number, make sure it’s active and working!
