    My mom's first smartphone, iPhone 4 8gig, is set to be delivered tomorrow. It pretty much went through all the annoying things that everyone's 4s' did, processing for days etc. But it's shipped and all set to be here by 4:30 tomorrow and I actually have the day off to get it and set it up for her.

    One question for anyone who has ever ported a number. How long does it take from the time I go to activate her phone to port her number and cancel her other line?

    Depends. I think they tell you it can take a couple of days to go through but last time I did it, it was a matter of minutes.

    Usually, less than an hour. Tomorrow, don't expect anything related to the wireless industry to go "as usual".

    It took me no time at all to do the same when I got my iphone 4. Think I canceled my old service/ported the number, whatever you call it, and set up the phone in under 15 minutes.
