I signed up with Cingular last night and the porting of both phones was
seamless. Everything was complete and working within 1 hour. Also, CS in
the Cingular store was excellent, BellSouth rep also cut me a nice deal on
the two landlines I have. Now I did walk in knowing exactly what plan and
phones I wanted and was out of the store in about 30 minutes.
FYI to those looking at the BB 8700c
If you plan to buy this on Amazon, you cannot take advantage of the rebate
AND port a number over. Of course you could wait for the rebate to clear
(as someone mentioned) then port but the rebate process can take 2-3 months.
Not worth it IMHO.
