It depends on where you moved. If you moved across a large town, there is no way they can port your number a lot of times. If you moved across a couple of states. Again they may not have a way to port the old number.

You have to give the techs that handle these issues in house. If you have a support ticket number. You can go to the Comcast Direct Forum at dslreports.com and put in a request, to see what is taking so long.
