    Porting Question

    Okay, I will be starting a port from StraightTalk today but had a question.

    I am using a Moto G with the BYOP AT&T sim, I know the SIM number is the account number, but when H2O asks for IMEI are they wanting the actual IMEI of the phone itself or the SIM number?

    Thanks for your help!

    When I ported I put my phone meid in, but I don't think they even used it, based on the form they emailed after the port request.

    For a new activation they don't even ask for that info, so I'm not sure why is asked for a port.

    Was that a form on their web site?
    I called them up and had a voice chat when I ported.
    They didn't mention IMEI OF the phone, and I wouldn't have given them one.
    The sim has an ICCID.
    now with H2O, after Straight Talk LTE sim debacle 4th Quarter 2013.
    Currently on locked AT&T iPhone 4S. (backup: iPhone 4)
    iOS: 7.1.2, carrier: AT&T 16.0 , modem: 5.2.00 , Data & MMS just fine.
    Previously at: iOS 6.1.3, carrier 14.2, modem 3.4.03 .

    I dunno... Black/H2O are pretty dodgy... Have you looked at AIO?

    I ported a number from page plus over to h2o. Put in the request around 8 pm and it was done the next morning.
