Wow.  Try porting a large customer from AT&T... oh, that's not a simple port, that's a project.  And, one number isn't in our database, so we can't do it.  Or, the physical location doesn't match, so we can't do it.

Our landline ports are instantaneous.  (Or so we think.)  It’s always been that way for us.  I didn’t know there was any other way.

How do cellular carriers perform almost instant porting of number, and why can't landline providers do the same? For example if I take my Sprint cell phone to an AT&T store, and switch over to AT&T they can do this almost instantly.


I met someone one time at a tradeshow claiming they could do same day porting for landline numbers just as the cellular industry did, but I was not sure how he was doing it or if it was a myth.


I know cell systems are more automated and require a pin.
