Porting Republic Phone number to Google Fi
They don’t tell you when you join, that if you ever want to leave, and port your phone, you might as well go on a 2 week holiday. No really. I started my port Sep 20th, and it is the 26th, and still not working. Google Fi says they are waiting for Republic, Republic says that all OK - first it was it will take 24 hours, then it was 72 hours, then I was told 5 days, then now 10 days!!! Really. I asked them to manually port it as Google Fi requested, they just give me the same link telling me how to do it. I ALREADY DID WHAT YOU TOLD ME TO DO!!! Ok, so I will wait 10 days! What do I do if after 10 days I still not have port? Can’t get any help. Why am I porting.? I started with Republic Wireless long time ago, I can’t even remember but it had to be at least 2010 after Verizon, who I had been a customer going back all the way to AllTel, took away all by unlimited plans that I had grandfathered in, I never went over, I paid all bills, then they lied to me repeat over and over - so I came over here. Seemed like a good trade off since I spent a lot of time on Wireless, and I had company phone. Got my wife another phone. We were able to port our long time sequential number numbers to Republic no issues … Years go by, Motorola phones I buy start flaking out, I call they switch SIMM cards, all kinds of issues. Nothing gets better now worse. I can’t easily port my numbers. See the rest of my RANT below:
Long time customer. Your service and phones have degraded over time, which it is the opposite of what I expected. If you keep any good records on your customers you will see past issues. I am trying to port number from you to Google Fi. I am on my 7th day waiting. This so unacceptable that I can’t even imagine nobody else has not gone through this. The information you give does not wash. I do not care that you are considered a Wireline company. What does that do for me? How is that even relevant that you cannot port my number, that by law you should be able to do. OK, so I don’t understand the technical process, who cares, you should be able to push it along some how. Not happy with all your “canned” responses. You keep telling me to go to Google Fi and talk to them, they tell me to go talk to you, you are all horrible…
