Heymarket can provide you with a new, professional phone number. Many businesses like that since it separates professional text messages from personal ones. It also provides an additional level of privacy.
Heymarket can also use the SMS portion of an existing business landline or toll-free number. The voice service will remain with your business' current service. The port process is straightforward and included in the monthly subscription. You will maintain control and ownership of the number.
Google Voice numbers can be ported, but that will include SMS/MMS and voice capabilities. That means you'll lose the Google Voice features (e.g., voicemail, outbound calls, etc).
Mobile phone numbers can also can be ported, but that will include the SMS/MMS and voice portions of the number. That means you'll lose the mobile provider features (e.g., voicemail, outbound calls, etc).
In all cases, you can always forward your calls to another active number.
