May 16 - Submitted port request online and received email confirmation back with copy of LOA attached. Porting my Comcast DV number to ooma.
May 26 - Received email from Sarah at ooma stating my port is scheduled for completion on June 4, 19 days from my request.
June 4 (today) - noticed about 30 min. ago that inbound calls to my number to be ported are receiving a disconnect/not-in-service recording. Not sure when this actually started. This is to be expected according to ooma phone support person, and that port should be finished by 5:30 pm Pacific time, or 7.5 hours from now (hopefully won't take that long).
Note: All call logs on original ooma assigned number lost but all other settings and voice mail box transferred to ported number.
I requested a number port on 5/16/2009. Received notification number was scheduled to be ported on 5/22/2009, for a port date of 06/04/2009. On 06/04/2009 port was started around 10:00 am and completed around 4:00 pm (during which time number was dead). So basically, 19 business days end-to-end to complete number porting. Very smooth port experience in my opinion.
From Verizon ILEC Land line.
Placed on-line order Friday Night May 22.
Received two Emails on Tuesday May 26th after Memorial Day.
Port complete On June 8th, as anticipated.
I do think Ooma should think about charging the $39 only when they successfully port a line, or issue a refund if they are not able to. Maybe they already do that? Otherwise, smooth transaction for me. Now, time to enjoy one less monthly bill!
