I switched service in May from Comcast to AT&T and want my original phone number ported back and was told I had to wait a monthh.

I NEED MY OLD PHONE NUMBER PORTED INTO THE NEW AT&T LINE.  My mom is here a lone when I am gone and I am getting several cell phone calls wondering if mom is ok and not answering the phone.  AT&T PUT THEIR OWN PHONE NUMBER DOWN AND I HAVE MADE SEVERAL CALLS AND TALKED TO SO MANY PEOPLE AND GET A DIFFERENT ANSWER FROM EACH ONE.  I HAVE HAD THAT PHONE NUMBER FOR 30 YEARS AND EVERYTHING IS ATTACHED TO THAT PHONE NUMBER INCLUDE DOCTORS, HOSPITALS AND EMERGENCY SERVICES.  I WAS TOLD I CAN GET IT PORTED 30 DAYS FROM WHEN WE START.  PLEASE PORT MY ORIGINAL PHONE NUMBER THAT COMCAST HAS TO MY NEW AT&T SERVICE ASAP.  I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO ANYMORE.  GUARANTEE I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THIS SERVICE TO ANYBODY.  AMA

When you ordered the AT&T service did you tell them you wanted to port your number from Comcast and if so what were you told.  At the time, not since.

The number is still active with Comcast? Has not been cancelled?

You can only port active numbers, if cancelled will not be able to do so.

Porting is generally 5 to 10 business days, ATT requests the number, Comcast has to release the number. If you owe Comcast money they may not release the number.
