Re: US N4 users: anyone with Ptel?
I have had PTel for just over a week now and I love it. I got the $40 unlimited plan and use my wifi at home for data. I haven't even used any data at all. In fact, I turned my Nexus S phone to only use wifi. Ptel offers coupon codes to get a free SIM with $20 off any plan costing $40 or more. I just purchased some more airtime yesterday and used PTELSLICK20 and it worked.
My husband is concerned that PTEL will go under. Does anyone know how financially secure they are? It appears that they restructured the beginning of the year. IF they are financially unstable then I would advise not purchasing too many airtime cards.
One other thing with PTEL, I filled out the request online to port my mother-in-laws phone over to PTEL and it is taking 3 days. I put the request in on Sunday night and today is Wednesday and her number still hasn't ported over from Verizon. When I ported my number over it only took 4 hours. I do know that they had a big sale last week so maybe they are swamped with porting orders. We have/had 5 lines with Verizon and we are all leaving to go with PTEL as soon as everyone's contract is up this summer. Their customer service is excellent and they speak English.
I found out that my mother-in-laws phone wasn't ported for 2 reasons. First PTEL had some issue which they now have resolved. And second the SIM that I put in her phone was no longer valid and they told me to throw it out. Luckily, I had an extra SIM from the PTELSLICK20 deal and installed that into her phone. Now we are waiting for Verizon to port her number over. My advice, if it is taking more than 2 days for them to port your number over please contact them there could be a problem. FYI, my number got ported in 4 hours!
