The problem isn't in porting the actual number itself...it is the 
underlying carrier(s) of Flowroute (or any other provider) not having 
some type of trunking connecting to the rate center or tandem you are 
trying to port the number from along with an LRN for that rate center. 
Along with other issues like 911/E911 support, etc. especially if it's 

The costs to a carrier could be several hundred dollars per month to get 
into a rate center so it's difficult when it's just a few numbers.
