I have been waiting for 16 days for the final stage of porting to be completed for my number from Telstra Postpaid to Boost. I have raised a formal complaint, referred to the TIO, and chased the problem almost every day but have achieved nothing. I have had one phone call from the Telstra case manager, another call from the Boost porting team, and a number of emails congratulating me on joining Boost, my service is all up and running now etc, except that it's not. A friend suggested cancelling the port to Boost, and try porting to Optus, then port back, but I"m not sure how possible that even is at this stage. 6 days until the TIO referral expires. I get promises of immediate action and feedback from Telstra and Boost, and have received so many apologies, but all to no avail. Does anyone have a suggestion about what to do next, or do I just wait for the TIO to jump in next Monday?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just to be fair to Boost, I don't want to complain then leave it sitting. I haven't heard anything from my case manager for 6 days, but tonight I seem to have service and can send texts and make calls. The Boost app doesn't show my ported number, but I'm glad for even a little progress! Hopefully in the next 24 hours the process will be complete.
Just before 6pm tonight I received an email saying the process was complete. My sim now thinks it is the number that was ported on 20/9. Four whole weeks, but at last, it's done. I have told the TIO that the problem is resolved, and wait for further info from the case manager about the issue.
