    Cricket port out time?

    Users who have ported from Cricket to another carrier, can you report here how long the port process took to complete?

    Less than 1 second.

    I ported out to Metropcs a few weeks ago. One last auto message was sent to my old phone, then that was it. New phone was working.

    It was instant. I ported from Cricket to Verizon prepaid and it went through immediately. Make sure you have correct account number and PIN and you should see the same.

    Went to AT&T Prepaid, the number ported as soon as he finished typing the Cricket account info on his iPad and hit "Enter". I got the welcome texts and new APN settings before he finished typing in the rest of the account info.

    FYI, I did do the port at a corporate store since I'd heard tales about Cricket ports to AT&T being problematic.

    I ported a cricket line to Google Voice a few months ago. That took the usual 24hours for GV ports.

    I ported a Cricket line to Sprint on Saturday night. It took just a few minutes.

    I'd consider it for the free 1 year.

    Did it at a Metro store last Aug 16. Walked into the store with Cricket service.

    Walked out of store with Metro service with number ported from Cricket. Port was virtually instantaneous once correct info is input.

    Sent from my Z982 using HoFo mobile app
