I've noticed too that intra-carrier ports can sometimes take longer than inter-carrier ports. More info: www.npac.com/number-portability/how-lnp-works

No excuse of the other side slow on approving the port, as it is Sprint.
Showing pending, waiting for it to complete tomorrow morning.
As a comparison, another line ported to Mint, was transferred in less than a minute.

I suspect the port department at Tello just hasn't been working today 12/24, or they've been swamped with new lines on the Christmas promotion. Either way, it's wrong of them to initiate the port when they know they're not going to be around to finish it. Ports are not supposed to result in a service outage of much time if any, certainly not several days!
Also, it's annoying,because not only did they not finish the port, but they also do not pre-activate the service on a temporary number while the port is pending, which would allow for mobile data work among other things. Instead, I have effectively suspended service. So as far as my welcome to Tello is concerned here, they have not been good to me!
