My phone is near useless right now. I'm waiting for 2degrees to port my Vodafone prepay number, and I have 11 cents credit.

I can either put my 2degrees sim card in, and I'll be uncontactable unless I spend a night telling everyone in my hefty contacts list my new details.. and then reverse the process later when I get my number ported over.. Or I can stick with Vodafone and be reachable but not have any outgoing communication..

This is the longest "8 hours" I've ever had to wait!

Whats Vodafone doing?!

I requested the number port on Saturday..

If I text IOU, then my sim card will be in debt and the port will not be able to be actioned.

But its okay, I think I needed a vent. I'll just bite the bullet tomorrow and finally put in the new sim card. I thought I'd ring 2degrees and find out what the story was, but I've been on hold for 1 hour 25 minutes now..

It would be a bit silly putting your new sim card in and telling everyone that this was your temporary new number then reversing it back in a day or 2 time. According to this thread

http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=85&topicid=39814

Vodafone have had a good 5000 odd requests for number ports and have said they should have released them by tomorrow Friday. I actually did 2 number ports as I didnt think the first one worked and the 2nd time I tried it happened inside 15 minutes but after wards 2degrees came onto the thread and advised everyone not to do that. So I would say give it till tomorrow before you tell everyone your new number and then revert back to your old one.

jahc: I requested the number port on Saturday..

Ports work with an outstanding IOU on them just fine, have now done 2 myself and have had a relative do one as well..

IOU is the most annoying thing since I had $5.40 on the phone, wanted the 100 meg addon, but no dice - IOU only works with under $1 - better then when it was under 20c so you had to send some random off network texts to get it down enough to IOU to make a phone call...
