FYI it’s not normal for any carrier to port data only numbers.  They are only for billing.

Why would you want to port a number to your vehicle? The number would not be usable by anyone. As noted, it is only for billing. If you are under the impression someone could call your car with that number, they can’t.

To hold on to a really cool phone number, when I don't need it for my
phone, but might use it later. Do you know of a better way to hold on to a
number?

thanks,
Laura
