porting number question


Jan 27, 2004, 3:35 PM
I will be porting my husband cell # from VZ to T-mobile next month. How long will it take for the number to be transferred over?

Greetings Heather,

In reply to the amount of time from VZ - TM concerning "Porting"...we have had a pretty good transfer time with them, Has been taking about 2 days to port.

Keep in mind the porting usually can take 2-7 days.

Please make sure that the Verizon account that is being ported stays active the entire time - T-Mobile will automatically cancel your Verizon service once the port is successful, and if possible please bring in a copy of your latest bill from VZ for the Rep to get the account# off of...this is required for the transfer.

Good Luck, and soon to welcome you to T-Mobile.

Hi Heather,
It takes anywhere from 2 hours to 7 days. I have a co-worker in the port center. If you need assistance in the future let me know.Thanks

Yesterday I switched from VZW to T-Mobile and 30 minutes ago, my porting was completed. 36 hours! Not bad compared to the 5-7 business day horror porting stories I've heard from friends.
