I am moving. Can I take my telephone number with me?

It depends on the area you are moving to.

Your telephone number is allocated to a defined geographic area called a Minimum Numbering Area (MNA). Your MNA is part of a wider STD (Subscriber Trunk Dialling) area which has a defined dialling code.

For example the STD code for Dublin is 01 and there are 3 MNAs within the 01 Dublin area.

If you are moving from one address within your current MNA to another address within the MNA, then it should be possible to move your number, although there may be some exceptions to this for technical reasons.

If, however, you are moving from Dublin to Cork, then you will be moving from the 01 area (Dublin) to the 021 area (Cork), it will therefore not be possible to move your number to a different STD dialling code area.

Please contact us at least 28 days before you want the change to happen.
