Virgin Port Issues - DON'T DO IT!

This is just feedback on my experience with porting from Virgin.. basically DON'T DO IT!! Switch to something out of the Optus network instead as in-network ports are just painful.


On Friday morning, I was told the port would take 15 minutes to 4 hours

On Friday afternoon, number not ported, I was told to check back tomorrow

On Saturday afternoon, still no port, so I was told it would take 24 hours and that there are issues with in-network ports

On Sunday afternoon, now I'm told it would take 3-5 working days as it's the "standard time frame"


So now I'm stuck with an unusable SIM and not able to cancel the service since it's now "stuck". Optus could have just been honest in the first place with the time it takes.. I would have just gone elsewhere.
