    Hello, I switched to at&t around 12:45 PST on July 13th.
    i got the iPhone and the lady at the apple store said that i will receive phone calls on the iphone in about 6 hours, its been about 12 hours since the activation. whenever i get calls, it just goes to my old phone from t-mobile and it doesn't go on the iphone.
    any tips or how to get the iPhone to get the calls?

    When I ported my number from Cingular, I was told that it could take up to 24 hours. Maybe with the load they've been having, it's taking a bit longer than expected. I would give it overnight, and if you're still having problems in the morning, give AT&T a call.

    That was actually a few years ago, but I doubt things have changed much.

    Not sure if that really makes a difference. I imagine it relies mostly upon both carrier's systems and how they handle the transfer.
