Porting from AT&T

Porting from AT&T

Hi,
 
Does anyone know how long it takes to port a number from AT&T?  I ask because I was told one thing last night by Comcast and another today when I called to set up the install.
 
Thanks!

Re: Porting from AT&T

Port from AT&T regular phone or AT&T Call Vantage?

Regular phone.  I do have Complete choice, if that matters?

For regular POTS service I believe it's 5 to 10 business days.

Hello Missy:


     Depending on your previous provider, the time length to complete the process can vary. One of our other moderators, I believe, sent you a private message with the specific time interval for your area and provider. Please click on following forum link for further information on the porting process.

     Hopefully this will answer your question. Please feel free to contact us or contact me directly if you any other issues.

Thanks

I am excited about getting this new service.  They will be there next Wednesday to hook it up!
 
One more thing...I have a wireless router.  Everything will still work like it is now, right?

The wireless router connects to the eMTA in the same way that it currently connects to the cable modem. There should be no difference to your Internet access.
