New AT&T customer awaiting iPhone 4s?
I am curious to how the porting your number process will work. I currently have a pre-order for the iPhone 4S with AT&T. During checkout I chose to have my number ported from T-Mobile to AT&T. I am curious to how this process will work?
When I get the phone do I insert the sim and call an activation number and presto?
Would really love to hear from those who did this last year with AT&T. Thanks

First, attempt to activate the phone on your own- it SHOULD activate with your ported number. Now, the key word in that phrase is "should". Friday will be a pretty crazy day for AT&T not only on the network but with their customer service lines. But in the past, It was pretty seamless activating a ported number on a new iPhone.

It's super easy! You shouldn't be on the phone with AT&T for any longer than 15 minutes. After that it may take up to an hour for your T-Mo phone to stop ringing when people call you. But that's worse case! I've seen the entire process happen instantly! It's really nothing to worry about though.
