    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.

    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. :icon_ banana:

    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
