    So today, I was having problems porting my number over online. I called AIO customer service, only to be told that they can't transfer numbers from Straight Talk. There's no way this can be true. Has anyone successfully transferred there number? How?

    Thanks a million.

    Actually I got the same response, at this time they cannot but should be able to in the future, so anyone that wants to try this, beware that it will not work at this time and that before you enter your port information to find out if it worked or not (which it wont) they get your payment info and they charge your card, so you have to call them up so that you get your money back for something that never happened.

    When they do allow porting, I be curious to here how their service is, will be switching the wife in October from Sprint. I have a buddy also on ST, and i will let him know, he was getting ready to switch over at the end of the month, glad you guys mentioned this. ;)

    Here's what I did: I ported my number from Straight Talk to AT&T GoPhone for a month. Then I ported it out for AIO for the next month. It's a 5-10 minute ordeal if you go into an AT&T Store to get a SIM, transfer number, sign up for a GoPhone plan for a month, and check out.

    You could also do this with T-Mobile's 5GB 100 minute plan as well which is available online at their prepaid site and at Walmart where T-Mobile is available.

    Just so you know, AIO's coverage is the same as AT&T's

    Good luck!

    We ported our number from Google Voice to T-Mobile, then to AIO. About 10 minutes in the store and we only bought the pay as you go minutes for about $5. Worked like a charm!
