What Can Slow My Port Down?

There are a few factors which can slow a port down or cause a rejection:

  • We are only as good as the information we are given. Any erroneous information will cause a delay in the porting process.
  • The information on your LOA must match the exact authorized name, service address and billing telephone number that your current provider has on their customer service record (CSR).
  • If there is a mismatch, your port request may be rejected. It may become necessary for you to contact your current provider to obtain correct information if your port is being rejected for a mismatch.
  • The LOA and the copy of your current provider’s bill must be dated within the last 30 days in order to be valid.
  • Make sure there isn’t a pending order on your account (i.e. address changes, scheduled work orders…). If you have a pending order please contact the current provider to have it canceled.
  • If your current carrier is backlogged with port out orders this could cause delays.
  • If you are still under contract with the current provider or owe them money your port will likely be rejected.
