Re: Unable to receive SMS texts or receive calls after porting

@pszucs How long ago did you do the porting? Which provider are you porting from? Do you have a second phone and keep the other SIM card working just in case you get messages from your previous provider about problems?

@pszucs The port hasn't gone through yet. What provider are you moving from?

@pszucsDespite people say transfer *should* be instantaneous.. it depends on a lot of factors that are just out of user's control. Inter network communications etc.

At this point I won't worry too much and enjoy your long weekend. Check in around midnight.

I would suggest keep your Rogers SIM card in another phone.. in case they tell you the port has failed.

Don't cancel the Rogers account until you are sure and has verified that the port is successful.

Your best advice for for would to wait.  If you're wondering about where calls are going when people call you, they are likely goong to your Rogers service. The Rogers sim card will stop working after the phone number has transferred.  If only have your Public Mobile sim card in a conpatible phone, you generally will not be a to receive calls and text messages for now, but you will receive one from Public Mobile advising that transfer is complete.

You need to be a little more patient perhaps...but if in 4 or 5 hours if you still can't call you will need to reach the moderator here...https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/notes/composepage/note-to-user-id/22437 and explain what happened..Waiting time is few hours to 2 days but they work 7/7 days. KEEP your Rogers account ACTIVE.

I would say that other people who say that it should be instantaneous are making that part up. I'm sure that we both know that it can be fairly quick, but the official line from the CWTA is quoted as 2.5 business hours for wireless to wireless phone number transfers.
