Hi there, I'm switching from Virgin mobile (sprint mvno) to Mint Mobile (t mobile mvno) how long would the porting process roughly take since initiation?

Also is mint mobile the cheapest possible LTE provider at 10GB LTE for 25 bucks a month with unlimited talk and text? Anything that is cheaper than Mint Mobile?

FYI - mobile to mobile is, landline to mobile or mobile to landline isn’t.

Then maybe it's the reverse that is slow. I ported a cell phone number to a VoIP provider and it took days. But that was years ago so maybe it's better now.

I switched from T-Mobile to Boost about 2 years ago. Within 3 hours, my service with Boost was activated, after the clerk at the Boost store notified T-Mobile for me.

When porting, make sure you have the exact same address on both accounts. Even one letter or character different can throw off or delay the process.
