Quote from: SteveInWA on October 07, 2019, 07:10:07 PMWhy can't you simply browse through the help pages? They are set up in easily-digestible topics, and anybody with a 7th-grade education or above can understand them.Personally, I've now walked you through starting the number porting process, which millions of people have done without assistance, and I now expect that you will make an effort to learn more, on your own, before asking more questions.

Quote from: MxxC on February 11, 2020, 10:49:40 PMHey folks. I'm looking to port my number from FIOS to GV. I was looking at the obitalk's porting tutorial page and it talks about using T-Mobile's pay-as-you-go plan. However, it seems like tmobile killed off that plan. I was considering MintSim as an alternative intermediary step. Especially since right now their starter kit on amazon is only $0.99 (and $5 otherwise). Would this method work? Can I port my number from Mint to GV?

Did you look at the recommendations on page 24 (or the page before this one)?

Quote from: daibaan on July 14, 2011, 06:19:35 PMI followed waichai2000's procedure exactly, got almost the exact the same result:Day 1: Called T-mobile's number porting dept (1-800-937-8997 then transfered to number porting dept), requested them to port my AT&T land line number to my prepaid SIM.Day 3 (13:00): Received a phone call on my T-mobile phone, caller confirm she was calling my AT&T landline number Day 3 (13:30): Create a new Google Voice account and request number porting. Provided the T-mobile account number and PIN.Day 4 (00:31): Received an email from Google: porting initiatedDay 4 (00:32): Received an email from Google: incorrect PIN (I am sure I provided the correct PIN)Day 4 (09:30): call T-mobile to confirm my PIN, CSR note that the newly ported in AT&T number has a port-out request attached and thought it was a mistake, I told her not to worry.Day 4 (09:40): provided GV the T-Mobile PIN again for porting (a link was provided in the google email)Day 5 (00:29): Received an email from Google: porting initiatedDay 5 (00:29): Received an email from Google: porting completed successfullyI suspect that the T-mobile system has problem handling a number being ported in and ported out on the same day. So if you get a "incorrect PIN" email from Google, just try again. Also it seems Google is performing all the number porting shortly after midnight each day.Thanks waichai2000
