Back story: We have 1 phone and the same number for 15+ years and was on cricket.
1 week ago, I ordered a simcard and a "temp" number so I could test the service compared to cricket.
I received everything in a blazing fast amount of time. Did many tests comparing cricket coverage and speed to visible. I was super impressed (still am) and spoke with an agent via chat at 6pm to port over my number to the sim.
This is when everything just went south and fast. My number was ported out of cricket, and into visible (I think). However, something happened to my account and now I still show the temp phone number on my account (app) and nothing works. I can not make or receive calls/texts to either number. I have been told my number is in their system and their techs are working on fixing the issue.
However, my wife has medical issues, I explained all of this the moment things started acting off that first night. She needs to have medical treatments which requires us to wait for a call due to covid. Yesterday we could not receive that call and she had to be admitted to the hospital. Now I am sitting here with no phone, and no form of communication other than email with a wife in the hospital and no way of talking to doctors regarding treatment. I also explained all of this to the 7 different chat reps who all say the same thing... they will personally explain this to the tech to ensure this is elevated and handled quickly.
I can't port my old number out even if I wanted to because its not even associated with my account at this moment.
Can someone from visible please help me?? I do have a reference number but am not posting that on here.
It has been 36 hours now and no real updates other than they are sorry and working on it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Are you my alter ego? If you swap Cricket for TMobile I'm having the exact same experience. Except I started with two failed eSim attempts. After putting in the physical SIM and starting the port it looked like things were improving. They were not. The number came into Visible but not to my account. I had no incoming phone calls or text messages on my ported line. That situation carried on for almost three weeks. Now I've got the number working on the phone but the account profile still shows the Visible temporary number. Tomorrow will be 2 weeks since that was reported. All I can get out of support is a frustrating "they're working on it. Watch your email for an update or resolution in 24 to 48 hours." Any information about what the problem looks like, what's been done to it, what future steps they can try would make it at least look like something was being done. As it is, it feels like the ticket is sitting in a queue somewhere being ignored. If I were to treat my customers this way I would've been fired three weeks ago.
