Port request submitted 4+ business days ago for a specific number (0800 43X XXX). They've sent it through - looks like they've updated with following:

 

"Losing Service Provider: Callplus"

 

Weird thing is that 080043 looks like it's under Spark according the NAD:

 

"Number: 080043 - Applicant: Spark - Status: assigned" 

 

Does it normally take this long, are they doing something wrong? Have asked them the same, but hopefully someone here knows more/is faster to answer

Yep, it often takes 5 days for a TF port, or even longer.

 

Although the number shows as being originally from Spark's allocation, it may have already been ported at least once before (maybe more than once), and possibly even before the current user of the number obtained it from their telco.

Yea toll free ports seem to take all sorts of different times. I don't even begin to understand what red tape might hold them up.

Might be the case with 2talk but I know I can port 0800 numbers often on the same day vs the normal 2 business days it can take for other fixed line numbers.

That's quite interesting. After a port gets accepted as having 'the correct info' (about a day), we can have ports happen the same, or following, day for regional numbers. But yea, toll free just seem to take widely varying times.

I used to have 09 555-5555 pointed at my home line. Lasted about 2 days before it got old and turned it off. It got about 10 calls a day from randoms.
