    Hey there,

    Here's my situation. I am porting my number from Straight Talk to VZW. Everything is going fine, and my order has been processed.. I'm just awaiting shipment notification.

    However, it seems that my ST phone is confused! It's sending me to VZW customer service, telling me that my call can not be completed and I am unable to sent txts or get data. So, basically.. I'm out of luck.

    The VZW tech guy can't help.. because the number isn't really ported yet.
    So, I have a phone that won't work.. until I get my new one. Can anyone help me in the short term?

    That's odd. I ordered a Droid X online and put in my number to port from AT&T. It's been 5 days since the order and no signs of my number porting. The customer support guy said that my number wouldn't start actually porting until I get my Droid and begin the activation. My iPhone still works fine.

    long story short..

    straight talk released my number. i had to spend an hour and a half in the vzw store finding out what happened.. getting my OLD vzw phone reactivated.. canceling my droid x.. and then, once the credit appears.. re-order. ugh..

    Number porting can be a bitch sometimes. Tried porting our number from Unicel to T-Mobile. But for a whole week, we could not receive any calls made from within our state. Then we went to Verizon, and that only took a day and actually worked properly.
