Quote from: soundview on November 17, 2012, 06:29:19 AMAt this time, the official Obi tutorial is outdated. When you initiate a GV port request, it never asks for the 4 digit pin during the initial process. This guarantees you will get rejected on your first try. So after seeing the first rejection, you now get to enter your 4 digit pin. But wait, there's more! GV also asks for the last 4 digits of your SS# - WTF? I have no stinking SS# on my cheap prepaid but they want it in order to proceed.

Quote from: CoalMinerRetired on December 09, 2012, 08:49:22 AMCan you elaborate on the point copied below, please? How did you bypass having to initialize a new SIM card with a temporary number? I read in several places, and understood from two landline to T-Mobile ports I did, T-mobile did not allow that very practice.
Quote from: billdz on January 28, 2013, 08:02:33 AMI decided to take that deal instead of porting my phone, because at this time the port would only save me $1 a month and I'd lose 911.
