Porting Process took 2 days :-)

Post by joe123 » Wed Oct 19, 2011 2:56 pm

I requested to have my AT$T landline ported over to Ooma that we have had for ~30 years with various carriers on Monday the 17th, and today the 19th (2 days later) the port was completed.

Rebooted the Ooma Telo and all is working great.

A couple of notes to make the porting process as fast as possible:

- Include a scanned copy of your phone bill with your request.
- Call your landline carrier and give them a heads up - I told AT$T that I was going to be porting my number and to make sure my number was not locked-down and that it was free to port. I also asked that if they needed my approval to port, to make it so. They noted it down.
- Make sure you are up to date on your phone bill and no contract to complete, etc.

The process went super fast in my opinion. :D

Same experience for me. Thought it was going to take several weeks and it only took a couple of days.

Make it three on the two day port list. This time my ported number was at my New England location.
