    Thumbs down verizon FAIL

    So I finally ported over my old number to my droid and I went like an entire day with NO service (just wifi) and it was killing me so after I couldn't log into my t-mobile account anymore, and i couldn't make calls i finally decided to look up the stupid port status online (i searched forever it feels like) and checked it and stupid verizon NEVER sent my damn text. apparently i could have had service the entire day!! verizon, you fail.

    EDIT: here is the page you can check your port status online if it seems to be taking longer than it should (like mine did) http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/LNPControllerServlet

    Sorry to hear about your problem. I, too, ported last Wednesday. Thankfully, Verizon sent me a text while I was still on the phone with the rep porting my two phone numbers over! I guess it was just a fluke that you didn't get yours. Hopefully, things have worked out for you by now.

    i went in the verizon store to get my droid and port my number from AT&T. i looked at the computer screen and watched them submit my port/termination. My iPhone lost service within a minute, and my Droid was working less than a minute after that.

    Sorry to hear your porting experience was so bad. I couldn't have been happier with mine given all the horror stories I saw online prior to my attempt.

    I switched over from T-Mobile also but I went to Wireless Toyz instead of going to a Verizon dealer. Those guys rock, knew all the problems that could come up and made sure my phone worked before I left.
    A measure of success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.

    When I went to T-Mobile they didn't port my number over for a week. There are idiots everywhere. Don't blame Verizon.

    That just about sums it up.

    I've been with many people who ported over to Verizon and they were all basically instant.

    For all those who got problems with a provider and their service. I dont know how that works in USA but here over in europe i got some tips:

    - after problems are solved call your provider again
    - explain the problems you had
    - KINDLY ask for a credit note / refund

    Normally when a provider really CARES about customers like Vodafone Germany then theyll do. I had instaled an app on my storm and it whas using an APN, that was not covered by my dataplan. I noticed and uninstalled but had 5 Bucks cost. i caled em, told em that i diddnt know about the APN stuff....and they refunded the 5 Bucks.

    So just try
