Porting out my Yobi Number?
In order to port your number out of Yobi, you need to have contacted a carrier which will take in charge of your number.
Once this step is done, Yobi’s carrier will release the number to the carrier of your choice. The process may take some time, so meanwhile it gets completed, our carrier is going to continue supporting the number until porting is completed successfully.
