    One week and counting since I requested to "port" my wife's and my number
    from Cingular to Nextel. Still Cingular has not released the numbers, and
    we are left using "temporary" numbers. Anyone have similar experiences?
    How long were you left waiting?

    I ported from T-Mobile to NEXTEL, and they shipped out my phone on a
    Tuesday. On Wednesday, I received the phone in the afternoon, and the
    number was working already. I didn't have any problems at all.

    Mine were ported from Cingular to AT&T Wireless without a hitch, as
    scheduled.

    Nextel should be able to tell you a time when the numbers are scheduled
    to be ported.

    I spent about 90min. (mostly on hold) on the phone with Cingular and Nextel
    yesterday. After much runaround (we haven't gotten a port request from
    Nextel, etc.) the second person I talked to at Nextel found a scheduled
    transfer date: Aug. 16 - 2 WEEKS after getting the phones!

    According to my Nextel dealer, this is a common problem locally with
    Cingular numbers. The numbers in question have local "landline" prefixes,
    and were at some point apparently acquired from Alltel, the local landline
    carrier. Apparently that causes some delay in the process...

    Less than two hours from Sprint to Nextel but I'm going back to Sprint ASAP.
    I'll even pay the $150 early termination fee. I bought a Blackberry 7510 and
    the DC button needs to be replaced. Nextel wants me to do one of three
    things.

    1) Send the BB back to Rim for warranty repair so I'll be without a phone
    for at least two weeks.
    2) Pay a service center $35 for a repair that is clearly a warranty repair
    and should be for free.
    3) Pay $2.50 per month for 'free' repair at any service center. But, it's
    not free if I have to pay $2.50 per month.

    All of these are unacceptable!
    I bought the phone from Nextel.com (directly from Nextel) so why do I have
    to send it to Rim for repair? With Sprint, I buy a phone from them and THEY
    repair or replace it, not the manufacturer. You would think paying over $400
    for a phone and $100 per month for service they would 'try' to accomodate
    you a little. All I have gotten was a wealth of mis-information from Nextel,
    empty pockets and the run around to three, yes three service centers that
    wouldn't look at the phone. One of these was Staples and they don't even
    repair phones at all. Bye bye Nextel... YOU'RE SERVICE SUCKS!

    You ARE aware that regardless, your number is eventually going to be a
    Cingular number once again, right?
