Re: for all those trying to port numbers

that way if you have problems, you can go to the source instead of griping that you are getting the runaround....of course youre going to get the run around if you talk to 5 people from different divisions who have no idea whats going on....
It was all over the news.....every major TV station advised people to wait, but if you didnt want to wait than go to a store with your bill, because thats the best way to do it.
6 out of the 6 ports I have done went through within 48 hours with NO problems.....because they came to me with their bills and I was able to get the port done properly.
Just a word to those who have had troubles and to those who are considering porting......GO TO A STORE WITH YOUR BILL AND 99.9% YOU WILL HAVE NO PROBLEMS
Just for the record, I DID GO TO THE STORE, WITH ALL THREE BILLS, and NONE OF THE PORTS WENT THROUGH FOR OVER 9 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!
One port from cingular to verzion went through last night, a total of 9 days and 4 hours to be exact, but the other two, going FROM AT&T TO VERIZON still haven't gone through.
AT&T has repeatedly responded to my requests to port with a "MDN not portable" response, forcing verizon to resend the request. I'm in market #78 of the top 100 MSA's (knoxville, TN) and so my numbers are deffinately portable. In at least my case, AT&T IS MESSING UP MY PORT, there is no question about it.
I seriously doubt that I am in the 1% that has had a problem even though they brought in their bill to the store to get the port done.
The sad truth is that AT&T is delaying my port process for some reason, whether that be intentional or not. Did I expect it to be done in 48 hours? no, but I didn't expect it to take over 9 days! This is ridiculous, plain and simple.....
