Mine ported today as well. Also no loss of service just like runagun said. I also received an email that I should contact my local carrier to cancel my account. Others have said that your account is automatically cancelled when your number is ported. I guess it wouldn't hurt to call and cancel for peace-of-mind.

Awesome, thively. I assume that your port went smoothly and without interuption of service as you added no extra remarks to that effect.

No problem. Never noticed it happened. Just got an email that my account log in was changed (from temp number to ported number) and when I checked, Ooma was on the ported number.

After the port, my AT&T line still works. I can place outgoing calls but just can't receive (because, of course, it has no phone number as it was ported away.)

I'm not sure if AT&T will automatically disconnect it or not, but under the circumstances I think it's necessary to call and cancel, or get a new number for that line. Since I got Ooma to get rid of my AT&T phone bill, well canceling is of course what I'll be doing :)

About 3.5 weeks from request to finish.
I'm porting from AT&T land line (POTS)

I had the exact same timing, except I submitted my request on 3/9.
