It takes some actual work but we do our part pretty quick. You should still give it at least 24 hours for it to be active in the phone company switches it has to get into. Most phone companies will put the calls through then although a few might take a little bit longer. It can also take a little bit longer on the weekend. Either way you'll get the documentation via e-mail usually the next morning. (Backorders are more involved and obviously take more time and effort but it will be started as soon as they are confirmed)
When can I transfer it? Short Answer: Right Away!
You can transfer it in 24 hours, when you get the documentation via email. You'll want to include the toll free birth certificate with the transfer form. We'll also give you free temporary service for the first 30 days or 100 minutes of use so it's working in the mean time.
