I don't think it's carrier dependent to be honest. We had AT&T and they didn't require a signed copy of the LOA when I submitted the request to port our number. In fact, ours went pretty smoothly:

1/30/2010 - Port requested, received confirmation email from Ooma same day with a copy of the online LOA attached.
2/1/2010 - Received an email from Ooma confirming they submitted all required information to AT&T and are awaiting confirmation. Email indicates due date of the order is the week of 2/16/2010.
2/3/2010 - Email from Ooma indicating expected completion date of the port request is 2/16/2010.
2/16/2010 - Landline goes dead sometime during the day (was at work so I don't know the exact time the landline dropped). Port completed by 4pm PST. Received an email from Ooma shortly thereafter confirming our port has been completed.

My number was successfully ported at noon on Feb 26.

Total port time = 2.5 days.
