    Picked up the photon 4g lte and I had boost but switched to my parent's family plan. I got a temp number from a sprint store until the porting is done but my question is has anyone had experience on timing of the porting? I heard 24-48 hrs but what have actual people experienced?

    Time of port varies. Sometime it could be a few hr or days. Mainly depends on you not owing the carrier you're leaving any money.

    I had ported a landline number to Nextel 3+ years ago and it took almost a week. When Sprint started shutting down Nextel I tried porting to Sprint and was unsuccessful. They even sent me a letter saying I needed to switch my number to Sprint and get a free dc phone. After trying for months and talking to dozens of cs people they finally said that number can not be ported and would have to get a new number. I walked into the store of a small local carrier and in 2 hours my number was ported to them. So my experience with Sprint/Nextel is that they are bad at porting even between Sprint & Nextel

    You'll probably know it's completed way before they make that phone call. I wouldn't hold my breath though waiting on the call. Use another phone and call the number you're porting.
