Porting Number from Virgin Mobile

I am currently trying to resolve an issue I have in porting my number from Virgin Mobile to Optus. I was told this was a simple and stree free process however has turned out to be anything but. 

I have followed all steps provided in paper and email. 

I have been advised that my sim would be working within 4 hours of putting it in my phone. 

Fastforward 24 hours and I still have no phone. To make matters even worse, the call centre support apparently do not work weekends - meaning I can not speak to anyone until tuesday (as it is a long weekend.) 


This is my first interaction with Optus and am very concerned about the level of service. Before writing this I checked the forum for similar issues and how to resolve it. Turns out this appears to be a common issue. 


I would never have come to Optus and would reccomend anyone else consider this before they decide to move thier phone accross also. 


I still have no phone (whilst paying for both my Optus and Virgin plan). 


Completely unnaceptable and very unprofessional.
