Number Porting / Number Transfers

The Bark Phone comes bundled with wireless service provided by Bark itself. As part of the setup process, Bark will assign your child's Bark Phone a phone number with an area code within your zip code.

You can also transfer an existing number from another carrier (known as "porting") at no additional cost!

Transfer your kid's number to the Bark Phone

  1. Keep your service active with the other carrier until your number is fully activated with Bark. Your account with your previous service provider must remain active to transfer your number over.
  2. Wait to transfer your number until after you get your new Bark Phone.
  3. Gather this info from your previous carrier:
    • Carrier Name (e.g. Verizon, AT&T)
    • Name on Account
    • Address on Account
    • Phone number you'd like to transfer to Bark (please contact your carrier to authorize the release of the number for porting purposes.)
    • Account Number (usually located on your bill or service provider portal)
    • PIN needed to move your number over:

       🔎 Find your PIN
  4. Enter that info into your Bark account settings.
    • Log in to your Bark account.
    • Tap the ˅ menu (computer) or ≡ More (mobile).
    • Tap Account.
    • Scroll down to Mobile Data > Manage Service > Transfer number to Bark.
