How long does it take to port a phone number?
What does it involve?
I've been waiting a week now with no phone :(

The actual porting process takes around the same time whether it's a landline or mobile port.

As to how long a "port" takes - well that depends on who it's with and when they lodge it. Standard timeframes are typically 2-4 business days.
