I have had great ports to 2 degrees and telecom on both prepaid and postpaid for telecom. The 2 degrees one worked virtually immediatly, and the vodafone to telecom one was done in a couple of hours. Only issue I have is how all the damn telcos assume you want voicemail and make you jump thru hoops to get it removed.

snnet: :/
I've yet to find one person who had a smooth as-promised number port.. And that's for all telco's.. was your original port faster? 


All my ports AWAY from Vodafone worked amazing easy. Voda -> Black + White took about 3 hours.
Black + White -> Voda; all of a Wednesday, went through at last minute.
Voda -> Orcon Went through at the last minute too, but it was all automated, and they gave me a specific date that it would be ported and I didnt have school that day I think, so didnt really bother me but was painless I think.

Still havnt had any progress on my current port though. =____=

I never use Voicemail. My dad leaves messages for me, But I never once have listened to them because its just a waste of credit. Might as well call them back

Number moved over at about 2pm today, after both my sims died. Tried topping up the vodafone one and it wouldnt accept it for some reason, and eventually blocked me. So I called them on the way home from school (headset, dw) and she told me that my sim wasnt activated so it wouldnt work anyway. So its all sorted and working now

Before trying to Topup you should have called 777 to activate the prepay account and then topup

I didnt think I had to because the guy at the store said he was going to do the activation thing for me
