    I'm not understanding why it would take a couple of days for you to transfer your service from the iPhone to an android phone. That should be instant. Doesn't make sense.

    Well they have I messages and other services apple is the king of closed systems and contracted headaches when the sheeple try to escape and I'm thinking they were switching carriers that does take a while where as with the same carrier to a new sim is instant but as I said it could take a while as Apple has you locked into different services and purposely make it a pain to switch

    I understand now. I had to read it again as far as the carrier switch. I thought they were just switching phones and not carriers. Thanks family. Now I get it.

    Well the OP said he was AT&T and they went to a T-Mobile store. Which leads me to believe the phone was a T-Mobile phone. Otherwise why would the craigslist guy need to go to T-Mobile. So yes, I guess it could take a couple days to PORT a number if he was keeping the same number. BUT, the employee should have known RIGHT AWAY that the phone was reported lost or stolen, as he/she would have got a warning as soon as the phone was put into the system.
    So we either have lazy employee never did his or her job while customer was there, or fraud. And Craigs list guy and t-mobile employee are in on it. I am swaying that way, since craigslist guy had NO issues going into the t-mobile store. If that was me and i knew that phone was lost/stolen I would have **** my pants walking into a store with it.
    But if t mobile paid his eta fee that could take a while to clear not to mention to get it out of the apple sources takes them a while to purge the number from it

    I actually called t mobile and was asking about switching the lady on the phone told me it would take 3 days... you see it has to get approved for t mo to pay an etf and at&t doesn't release it instantly that's what she told me and this was from t mobile customer service on a corporate call center level
