verizon wireless prepaid GOTCHAS with LNP

If you’re planning to port-in a number to your verizon wireless prepaid (non-sim) device

  • do NOT activate it
  • FIRST initiate the port-in process
    • VZW will collect: MEIN, current MDN (uh oh catch 22), account password (uh oh catch 22),
  • ideally: wait for the port department to call you with competition notification
  • *22899 to [re]activate new VZW account profile to device

.

OBSCENE VZW prepaid GOTCHA:

  • during the prepaid port-in you CANNOT receive calls on the handset
  • VZW cancels the current MDN and immediately assigns the port-in as MDN *prior* to port-in completion
  • VZW claims minutes cannot be transferred between devices
  • minutes on current MDN will be FOREVER LOST when MDN is cancelled

other MVNO of VZW do not have this ultra retarded policy: they want you to spend your incoming minutes.

  • Port-in to TracPhone (on verizon): keep existing number until *228 pushes port-in MDN.
  • Port-in to StraightTalk (on verizon): keep existing number [MDN] until *228 pushes port-in MDN.

.

What should happen on prepaid should match VZW MNVO and VZW contract:

  • profile created with port-in MDN and pushed through activation (*228) AFTER port-in completes
  • allow one to receive calls at original MDN during port-in process
    • allows subscriber to forward all calls from port-in number to current number for a SEAMLESS transition from the perspective of callers
  • properly handle RDNIS information

.

Attaching minutes the MDN is obviously FOOLISH.  The MIN would be better suited allowing a minute share between current- and would-be MDN.  There are other VZW tools available to help verizon customers spend money on verizon services during the port-in process.

.

VZW agents additional DAILY prepaid silly claims (read as: FALSEhoods):

  • only charged for calls answered by- or initiated from handset
    • not charged for calls dumped into voicemail
    • not charged for calls answered by NoAnswer-Busy-Forwarding line
  • voicemail is deleted from account in 60 days if not setup

outlook.com antispam adds whitelist weight to email addresses used at “social” datamining sites.  Are you wise enough to avoid the folly of volunteering time to ad server profiling?  Then outlook.com might punish you for sending email.

grrrrreat plan
