[VoiceOps] Instant Porting

Forget I said anything.  You guys are talking about something different.
I was referring to when our tech goes out to install our phone service,
the LOA/FOC process is already complete and we just make a change to
NPAC and calls start flowing in.

If both carriers have a good business relationship and are willing to
write matching orders in the NPAC (winning carrier makes the
subscriptions, the losing carrier submits concurrence) you can port
numbers in literally seconds.

But we're not required to do things that fast so it rarely happens. Why
move fast to let our customers leave when we can legally take our time
and spend a couple days collecting more revenue from them?

(DEFINITELY not speaking on behalf of my employer!)

always been that way for us. I didnt 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.
