Re: Phone Port

Hello, I have the same problem, I bought a new LG X charge (the cheapest because I wasn't sure if the port is going to work) about 1 month ago, and I called Xfinity to start the port, the number that I want to transfer to Xfinity is coming from phonenumberguy and same problem, phonenumberguy told me that Xfinity didn't use the correct info, this is what they told me:


"For some reason they (Xfinity) are submitting CATALYST at the name on the account.

The rejection was for Invalid Authorization Name :


Please have the winning carrier correct this and resubmit."


And after Xfinity start the port processing I can't make or receive any calls since then. When I try to make a call a Verizon answer machine shows up Smiley Sad


More than 5 calls to customer service to Xfinity and nothing.

Anyone who can help us?

ccc300, catalyst is a system tool we use for XFINITY Mobile so I'm not sure why that is in the port info. Let's try to clean this up. Please send me a private message with your full name, address and phone number associated with your residential services for help.
