Yes it’s true, the porting issue with Comcast may actually be over. For a refresher you can look here, or here. The lady given our case from the executive office of Comcast has been pretty punctual at calling us every couple of days. Unfortunately it’s to tell us they are still working on it. It must of been really messed up because it took Comcast over two months to straighten this out. Last week some time we received the call we’ve been waiting for, that they have fixed the issue and that Comcast has no record anywhere of having control of our phone number. Well I hope it’s true–Now that I think of it, I never did ask if my in-laws, Comcast phone users, where able to call me yet.
I would like to get a Wii for my son this Christmas (OK, for me too), but it doesn’t look like they are going to be available anywhere. It doesn’t seems any stores are selling them, and the places online who are selling them, are charging too much. What gives, what is with this consistent Wii shortage? Some may say that it’s planed by Nintendo, but what do they have to gain, people want it, lots of people do, but they can’t get it. We are members of the YMCA, they have a Wii in the kids area and all the kids love it. Even they would like to buy a second (or third) machine, but can’t because they can’t find them. This is really frustrating.
The saga continues! Calling Comcast support still hasn’t progressed anywhere with my wife or I so I had a new idea, contact the FCC. Now I understand the need for the FCC, but I haven’t been a big fan since the day they raided a friends house and removed thousands of dollars in high-energy equipment for disturbing local radio communication. And yes, he ignored their prior warnings.
Guess what, it actually worked! On Thursday(11/1) we received a phone call from the executive office of Comcast indicating to us that they have received an letter from the FCC about our issue and will get it fixed straight away. We received an update that night that they where unable to complete the update but will continue to try. No phone call received on Friday, so believe me I will be following up on Monday morning. Yes, the representative from Comcast gave me their contact information. Hopefully they can finally get our phone number fully ported out of their systems.
By the way, Digital broadcast is a reality and by February 17, 2009 analog T.V.’s will be useless unless they are setup to receive a digital broadcast signal. Bastards. http://dtv.com
