I think it’s the nature of online communications that everything seems to have to be a disagreement or an argument.
I’d prefer to have a conversation.
Our experience in testing number transfers between 4.0 and 5.0 plans did not take the extended period of time that may be indicated by information you found online. We saw transfers take place in a matter of minutes.
We had documentation written about waiting, how to continue using 4.0 plans while waiting, what to watch for to know the wait was over. But testing indicated none of that was necessary.
If, after we get all of the current issues resolved, we find that actual transfers take longer in some cases, we will publish that information. But at this time, it is not our understanding that members need to anticipate such a delay.
