    porting number to ST from VZW took only minutes. :)

    In another post I was talking about how I was nervous about porting my number from VZW to ST. So I ended up porting to Google, which I don't regret.

    A few days ago I ported my wife's number from VZW to ST on ST's website. The porting was complete within MINUTES. Very satisfied.

    If you are going from Verizon to one of the non-Android CDMA phones, it is not really a "port" since the underlying carrier network did not change. If you go from Verizon to a GSM phone or a Sprint-based Android phone, this is a true "port."

    I did the AT&T-compatible BYOD SIM. Put the SIM into AT&T iPhone. All works great.

    I am nervous with this as well, but I have a feeling that this is just a vocal minority with trouble porting their numbers.

    I must admit I'm thinking about the Google voice route also. Hopefully it would allow for some more control and flexibility.

    Google voice is nice option as long as you have android phone where integration is awesome. If you have non android phone integration is crappy

    The other concern is regarding mms as google voice doesn't have mms or a way to forward those to your st number like they can regular texts.

    Since you are paying for the service, why not use the phone to send and receive MMS? People would reply to the telephone number from whence came the messages.
