Understanding AT&T Port Status
If you want to port your number from another network to the AT&T network, you simply gather your information from your current carrier. Then you submit the information to AT&T and request to port your number from the current carrier to their network.
AT&T will commence the porting process, which involves reaching out to your current carrier to place a port request with your details. This process takes some time.
While this is going on, you can check the progress of the process. This is where checking your port status comes in handy. It is essential to keep track of your port status because AT&T can reject your order or request.
How Long Does It Take To Port A Number To AT&T?
The time it takes to transfer a number to the AT & T network depends on two factors. The type of number you want to transfer and how you placed your transfer request.
It can take up to 24 hours to transfer a wireless number to the AT & T network. On the other hand, it takes 5 to 7 days to transfer a non-wireless number (landline) to AT&T.
If you place a transfer request in an AT&T store, it can take as little as 3 hours to complete the transfer request. While it can take up to 5 business days to complete a transfer question you place online or over the phone.
How Do I Check My AT&T Port Status?
You can check your AT&T Port Status on the AT & T site. Simply visit the port status page. Enter the phone number you are porting from your current carrier to the AT & T network. You will see a new page with your port status.

Why Is AT&T Port Status Showing Rejected Order?
AT&T can reject your request to transfer a number to their network for several reasons. Below are some of the possible reasons why AT&T may reject your port order:

The information includes your account number, PIN or Port code, and personal information. If any of this information is incorrect, AT&T won’t process your order.
. The number you request to transfer is inactive.
