    Yesterday I spent a good hour on the phone with Sprints number porting department and learned something very interesting. It is apparently IMPOSSIBLE for them to port a Boost mobile number into Sprint.

    My question is, isn't there some FCC regulation that REQUIRES THEM TO BE ABLE TO DO THIS?
    Isn't there some kind of massive daily fine every day they cant do this?

    Could someone please educate me on this? I would prefer to not have to port the number to an ATT/T-Mobile pre-paid phone in order to port it into Sprint.

    Thank you.

    I am a bit surprised at the trouble, as it should be straightforward. However, I don't know whether they have to permit the port or not, since they are technically the same company.

    It is near impossible to port from Sprint to Boost, so I guess the reverse is true as well?
