Default porting number, please advise-any special stuff to do?

Please Login to Remove!

thanks in advance for any help!

because a BB isn't just a normal phone, are there any special hoops to jump through when you port your number to another provider? I get shitty reception and connectivity with T mobile, and i need to get some other service.

what do i have to do that is weirder than just a normal phone # port when you just go to the new provider's website and all that?

thanks!

Your device will be locked to only work witht the t mobile service. If you are in good standing with your provider and have been for 90 days you can request the unlock code from t mobile.

There is a lot of good information out here about this problem, run a search and read up on it.

Good luck

Oh that could be. I can see how you got that.

Well, between you and me, we covered all of the bases.
