My initial discussion with Cogeco (cable provider) indicated it took them 5 working days. That was confirmed twice (I bought my Ooma because they wanted ~$23/month for the service - might as well stick wtih Bell).
I appreciate that the porting is really out of Ooma's hands - they put in the request to Bell and then wait. Anyone had a good experience in speeding up this process? If so what did you do?
I have the Ooma Premier for two months (just like everyone else) but I'm not going to get much out of it. We're not even using the Ooma our current number will go away so why publish?
Thanks everyone, Steve.
In Canada, porting may work a little differently than US but I think they should pretty much be the same. There are cases where porting is not "simple," meaning it will have to take more time. The timeline you see as far as estimate is what was provided by your landline to Ooma (or to Ooma's partner carrier that will service your number; negotiation on dates goes on between your landline and Ooma carrier so Ooma just reports the results/progress to you). No way to speed it up; only thing you can do is to monitor your porting status and get back to Ooma as soon as you see any steps requiring your attention.
