That was harder than necessary. But my old cell phone number has caught up to my new Cingular service.
All the Cingular customer service reps did great. I suspect that they get a bad rap because Cingular has such brain dead business processes. I understand that Cingular can’t just give out Manhattan phone numbers to everyone. But given the close proximity to Manhattan, why not allow Connecticut Gold Coast retailers to give out Manhattan numbers.
Instead, I had to start with a Connecticut number from my local retailer (sim card 1). Request a relocation to the New York market (sim card 2). And finally complete the number port from my old carrier (sim card 3).
Oh well, I have my number and a Razr. I should stop complaining.
