    How long did it take for your number to get ported? My iPhone works and is activated, I can call out, but incoming calls still go to my old phone. I'm wondering how long it took everyone's numbers to port?

    ~3 minutes

    Literally the WHOLE setup was priceless.

    My activation was completed in about 10 minutes, and my T-Mobile number was ported over in less than two hours.

    About 3 hours Friday night but about 30 minutes once I shut off my existing phone...

    Got my iPhone Friday night, iTunes wouldn't accept my porting number, so i registered with another number. Went into AT&T on Saturday around noon, talked to the guy there, he got it squared away and said it could take up to 24 hours. Called the number he gave me Monday around 10 when it still hadn't happened, talked to a lady there who finished it up for me. Restarted the iPhone and it worked!

    One thing she said was that the old phone had to be turned off, and then you had to turn off and back on the iPhone to get it to work... there was about a minute delay before the number switched after i did this, during which i thought she was lying to me :rolleyes:

    No joke, about a minute.
    After clicking through the screens and setting it up, I picked up another phone and called my number. The iPhone rang.
    I sympathize with everyone who had troubles, but I've done this a few times before and it's never been this smooth or quick.
