    How long for A-List Activation?

    I changed my plan and entered my five numbers sunday at 9am.
    Its now 11:30 here and still says pending activation.

    I thought its supposed to take 24 hours.

    Can someone whos A-List is activated, how did it take for yours
    to be activated?

    Could something be wrong?

    Mine are about 1/2 way thru activating ( 6 of 10), I started yesterday at about 7:30 AM EDT and my last addition was about 5 PM last night.

    The official answer is 24 hours but your experience seems to be longer... I would guess that the initial load on the backend systems may be resulting in longer activation times.

    they are probably just overloaded since yesterday was the first day, so they probably got slammed with tons of requests. its supposed to happen in 24 hours.

    Does it really have to take 24 hours to allow a number to be called unlimited? All of mine are still pending activation and I did them last night. When I had T-Mobile, my myFavs would update almost instantly...

    Yea I believe they do the 24 hours so people just don't add numbers right away and then start calling for unlimited calling.

    Yeah... the 24 hours would stop someone from changing the list everytime they called a new number.

    Does anyone know if a number is on my "A" List can I also receive calls from that number to my cell and not use my plan minutes?

    I assume (like that word's accroymn) that a number being listed on the a=team calling list is "pending deletion", then calls are still under the free calling billing? Any one with experience here.
