    problems with port of landline to cell phone

    Hello all: a friend who uses a Bell MTS cell service recently ported his landline number to his cell, replacing his old cell number.

    Problem is that some of his online services that use a cell number for security verifications, do not recognise his new cell number (which was his landline) as a cell number... One of his online services worked but the other 2 nogo.

    Question is how long does it take for the cell system in nortth america to "know" that a phone number is now a valid cell number??? We waited a week but still no go. Or does he have to contact Bell to trigger something???

    thanx
    Guy

    It's possible the services sending text messages are looking up the original phone number for validation. If that's the case, there's nothing you or Bell can do.
