And for what they are talking about, they are right. If you notice, the OP said his number had been successfully ported already. My experience with T-Mobile, however, is that while the "port" is successfully completed it takes them time to update the account info, since T-Mobile uses the phone number as the account ID. So they fix the phone number on the phone, and the phone acts as if the port is completed, but it takes one or two business days to fix the account information.
