Porting a number between VOIP providers- how long does it take?

+1 vote
I kept having caller ID problems with Vonage (basically the caller ID would only show up like half the time).  Vonage has been completely unhelpful with this so I'm thinking about switching to another VOIP provider.  I need to keep my old number though so is there any limitation and how long does it take to switch to another VOIP service or even a traditional landline service like Verizon?

I actually switched to Ooma from Vonage about a month ago and signed up for Ooma Premier 1 year which came with a freebie that I used to get a free number port from my old number.  After filling out the form on a Thursday night it was completed six days later on Wednesday.  They had orginally said it would be about 2 to 3 weeks. 

I double and triple checked the info I provided in the number porting application because I heard any mistake could mean a long delay.  I also uploaded a PDF copy of my latest Vonage bill.

So if you decide on Ooma it could take just a week or less!
