Was in the same situation. You can port it to Fongo for like $10. One slight nuance is that if you change your App Store to a different country, it’s a different Fongo App / account. You need to email fongo support and get them to change your account to a fongo international account. That said if you don’t change the country of your App Store it shouldn’t be a problem. This is for iOS anyways, not sure if android is different

Does Fongo and voip.ms work for text used for 2FA, as used by google etc.

How easy to port your number out from Fongo to a cell provider latter?
