Either really smart thief or dumb phone operators etc.... and at the same time really dumb thief.
I got my phone number stolen. It's a vanity number. So yesterday I went to the local tmobile shop to get my dad a new sim card. His wasn't working. I got the card. Tried to call his new card. My phone wasn't working.
I call myself on my other line. Some dude pickup on my line!!! I hangup right away. Told Tmobile what was going on. They switch it back to my simcard on my phone.
At this point tmobile doesn't know whats going on. Some how my number was just switch over to some other guys.
I thought nothing of it. Today Same thing happen. My phone wasn't working again!
I call them. They were like let us see what happen. They claim I called them to get my account info. Next thing you know "I" cancel my own line.
I told them why would I do that I just got my number back yesterday. The info they got from TMObile allow the guy to cancel my line and reset the password to my online account. The online one was easy to get back. Just reset to my email and it was done.
But now my phone number is in limbo. The guy cancel it and some other carrier is holding my number to be transfer to them.
This guy for some reason wants this number badly!! This is the dumb part of the guy. Like I can't tell my phone is no longer working. I know who stole it! the guy with the same number as mines. I should have talk to the guy yesterday. Dude you realize I know you stole my number!!!
It's not like stealing something else. Where you won't ever see that again. The number on the other hand is register and you can dial any time etc...... But its a pain the in the ass. Apparently they have to wait 4-5 business days to try to get a answer from the 3rd party that is holding my number. while its being transferred.
