I knew trying to do this on the last day of the deal was a bad idea. I should have stuck to my gut.
I went to T-Mobile and got my Sprint number ported over.
I had to spend $10 on the sim and then $10 later on to get service to my phone when things weren’t working.
I went to the Sprint $15 page and made it to the last step in checkout and it said the payment couldn’t be processed. I tried 4 cards and none of them worked. It was the T-Mobile port that was holding things up.
I did the online chat with Sprint and they told me to clear my cookies and cache and try again. Tried again, still didn’t work. Then tried with my wife’s SSN and it told me I had to call in instead of taking me through the checkout process as it did before. Tried again with my own SSN and now I’m hung up on the credit check step like I was with my wife’s SSN, telling me to call. I called and have been on hold for an hour. According to the site, there is 1 hr 19 minutes left for this deal. I just threw away the grandfathered SERO plan I’ve had since 2006 for this deal and I’m not going to get it!
Unless someone picks up in the next hour and can navigate the issue I was having with porting my number from T-Mobile, this is going to be the worst deal attempt ever. And I’m without phone service until I figure out what the hell to do after this thing collapses.
