@Anthony77 -- as previously discussed on this forum, Shaw does offering "porting protection" -- blocking any change of your telephone-number to another provider -- to Shaw Phone customers. You will need to contact Shaw to enable this option. This is a "user-to-user" discussion forum; nobody here can activate this option.

@Anthony77 -- I have some updated information.

From: How To: Transfer your Phone Number to Shaw Mobile,

Protecting your Number from Unauthorized Transfers

As of November 16, 2020, Port Protection as an account setting (which used to be added, by request only, to restrict requests to transfer your number out to another carrier) has been replaced with the SMS authorization process described above.

The "above" part is a SMS from your current provider that requires you to reply "YES" within 30 minutes, or to directly contact your current provider, to authorize the transfer.

So, the "short answer" is that everybody is automatically protected -- no need to make a request to Shaw.

@rstra -- Land-line or mobile, it makes no difference. Shaw's web-site states that can port both land-line and mobile telephone numbers, with the same level of "porting" protection.

QED

@rstra -- So, they will text a landline? 

This is a peer-to-peer discussion forum. Neither you nor I can authoritatively answer that question; only Shaw can.

However, Shaw Phone does "speak" each word of the text-messages that my brother sends to me. 🙂

@mdk  Having ported my dad’s phone line, I can say, without a doubt, that they didn’t text his land line. But, keep trying.

@rstra --  they didn’t text his land line.

That just goes to show you that Shaw Phone's service is better than which ever that your dad was previously using. Keep trying.
