    Hello @Paz

    This is very abnormal. It should be a matter of hours.

    Did you receive a text message about the transfer authorization request?

    Is there anything in your notifications? https://zone.fizz.ca/dce/customer-ui-prod/#/account/notification

    The following page has the different issues regarding line transfer issues: https://fizz.ca/en/faq/im-having-problems-transferring-my-current-phone-number-to-fizz-why-what-can-i-do

    In any case, I suggest you chat with Fizz right away because

    Depending on the situation, you may need to choose a new number. Either way, the issue needs to be resolved within one payment cycle. If it isn’t resolved, your plan will be cancelled three days before the end of your payment cycle.

    To chat:

    1. Go to a FAQ page e.g. https://fizz.ca/en/faq/status-services
    2. Look bottom right for the big ❔ question mark in a green bubble.
    3. Click it, options will be displayed
    4. Choose "Chat"
    5. Note: the bubble will only display the chat for a computer version. If you are on a cell phone, you must check "Desktop site" in your browser settings.
    6. Submit your question with possibly a relevant screenshot or modem photo 
    7. After that will be displayed the number of customers preceding you, to manage your expectations. Updated real time.

    ALTERNATIVELY, try leaving a message on Facebook Messenger (https://www.facebook.com/fizzca), iMessage or Twitter private. The advantages of their tool are the management of waiting times and the ability to print (e.g. PDF) a copy of the conversation for your records. Sometimes you can even leave a comment about your satisfaction with the conversation.

    I agree, this is not normal. Best thing would be to reach out to Fizz support via Live Chat. I am sure they can help you out and reinitiate the port. Good luck.
