I lost my phone and sim card, so bought a replacement phone with SIM card (for half the price of the original phone - after only two months).

How long should it take Telecom to port the original phone number to the new SIM?

So far I have been waiting 48 hours - what should my expectation be?

This is not porting and just a sim swap. Porting is when you take the same number to another carrier.

if its not scheduled for a specific time, 48 hrs is more than enough ... call 123 and see whats happening.

4 hours from time of provisioning.

Where did you get the SIM from (which store)?
