Want to disable your phone # for 30 days? Port it to Tracfone.
Now that the issue is resolved, I can warn people that the simple act of trying to port a Google Voice number to Tracfone took a full 30 days, a minimum of 6hrs of my time trying to talk to tech reps, 5 or 6 trouble tickets and countless broken promises of callbacks, email or follow-up from reps.
I don't rant about mobile companies often. I've carried a mobile since 1988 and dealt with a dozen or more companies over the years.. they all suck in one way or another, but this is absolutely the worst. I could not do a thing with this number for 30 days... I couldn't even port it to another carrier once it was in the Tracfone system as you have to have a functioning phone in good standing in order to port a number out.
If you want to be trapped and at the mercy of a bunch of English as a second language reps who don't deliver what they promise... go Tracfone. If you want a real wireless company, I recommend Verizon which is where I keep my primary number.
