I started service with AT&T years ago when lived on an island in Alaska. I've since moved to Portland and want to switch my service to Verizon because there coverage is significantly better here. But, I'm told I cannot port my number because of where it originated and Verizon does not have service there. HELP!!
The only possible way to get the number ported is through the carriers, you need to work with them. No-one on the forums can make them do it for you. Of course you are trying to port an area code also which is probably where the issue is coming from. You may be able to get the same # but a different area code, did you check for that?
