    Is your Port Apparently Stuck? If you are going TO Sprint, EMAIL me your
    porting telephone number, and I will see what I can do. I can give you a
    status, and fix it if need be. Also include your first name. I will call
    you back with the contact number on your bill, or email you.

    Why not OUT? Because its 100% the problem of the new provider. NO CARRIER,
    I repeat, NO CARRIER can hold up a number LEAVING the provider. In fact
    there are ways a new provider can just take the number anyway.. if they
    really wanted it... after Proper documentation and escalations, and they
    have that ability.

    I know because I work at the port center for Sprint, and we have done it,
    when the other carrier was unresponsive or didn't know what they were doing.

    [email protected]. Send me requests for status of a port INTO
    Sprint, and I can help.

    And? What was that for? I know about that.. it can be removed, and it ONLY
    applies to Nextel. I am talking about companies being blamed for holding up
    the actual port.. assuming there isn't an administrative lock.. there is no
    reason it should not port.

    Re: PORT INTO Sprint

    I was told my number was stuck. I've been waiting for over 14 days. After
    holding for 60 minutes each time, I was told by three representatives over
    the last week that I'd get a call within 24 hours. Each time, it didn't
    happen. I'm waiting to port from AT&T to SprintPCS.

    <sigh>

    The EXACT same thing happened to me for exactly the same wait. It
    wouldn't be so bad, except that Verizon switched over the line a week
    ago and I haven't had any service.

    double sigh.

    Wow... I guess I feel a little better. It would totally be frustrating to
    have no service.

    The FCC really needs to step-in and clean up this mess it created. What has
    happened is unacceptable.

    Re: PORT INTO Sprint

    Over 30 days for me now. Porting from SBC to Sprint. Still can make calls
    from home, but no incoming. One positive, if one can find a positive, is
    that I'm now working with one person through executive services, so no more
    long waits on hold. My contact is sure they can figure out what happened in
    my situation. It's been so long, I don't worry about it anymore.
