Ask for second or third level support:streitms wrote:Has anyone else had a bad experience with porting? My number is coming up as disconnected, it has been for almost a week now. Seems like no one at OOMA cares. OOMA seems like a nice system when it works, but customer service doesn't respond to issues. Really how hard can it be to port a number, at least keep it in service at the old provider until you can manage to port it. Never had this experince with porting with a "REAL" phone company. They are supposed to be responding with an email, or at least that is what I keep getting told, I haven't got a single email from the porting department, I'm beginning to wonder if there actually is a porting department. I think they just charge your credit card the $40 for the port and hope that it just automatically works?

Is your port completion date a week ago? You should have received at least some communications from Ooma (via email) on your porting status; also a Voicemail left on your Ooma the day before port completion date. Check out your porting status here: https://my.ooma.com/porting_status and see where it is at.streitms wrote:Has anyone else had a bad experience with porting?
