This glitch meant Vodafone missed the Commerce Commissions deadline of providing inwards porting to Prepay by April 1st.
See here for a discussion on the matter.

Actually, it's been working for the past three days so no, we didn't miss the Commerce Commission deadline.
I have no notification here that Vodafone couldn't port today - are you sure it's not just DigiMobile stores that had some kind of comms issue?

Right, here's the situation. We did indeed have an outage in our ability to port numbers yesterday (April 1). In fact, we had two different issues that conspired to knock out porting for most of the day.
This despite us having the system up and running for several days prior to the launch.
The problem was resolved overnight and number porting is working again as of first thing April 2.
So clearly I owe you a beer (or a port. ha!)
