    It's still supposed to take 3 1/2 hours, but more often takes closer to
    a week than a day.

    I just ported my land line, business line,... to my cell. The last
    8 hours were the worst, I have an older Motorola phone
    and getting it to confiqure was a real chore. Thankfully the
    Cingular tech people were very patient. I am now, for now a happy
    camper. Over all it took about a week % 1/2.

    Re: Porting time from ATT?

    I did about 3 weeks ago.

    What a pain! First let me say - Cingular was great. They did everything
    they could.

    After 2 days of being in dual service I started to get pissed. I called the
    cingular port number numerous times. They answered in 2 minutes or less
    every time! They were always helpful and advised that ATT has still not
    released the number for port. I asked them if they had the number for ATTs
    port service.

    I called ATT port service. WAITED ON HOLD 75 MINUTES. When they finally
    answered, he was able to release them right then on the phone. Called back
    Cingular, they did their thing and I was up in the next cycle!

    Beware - I got another bill from ATT. They said the request to terminate
    service never took. They were able to cancel and back date it, but what a
    pain!

    BTW - I filed a complaint with the FCC on ATTs port time. Cingular called
    me less than 2 weeks later and asked what happened because they received a
    CC. They have been nothing but great! BYE ATT

    I ported from ATTWS to Cingular on 2/19 at a Cingular store. It took about a
    half hour. The Asst. Store Manager handled it. He had to use a second SIM
    because of a problem with the first, but other than that it was painless.
