You don't HAVE to switch by the 16th, our exact words were this: "Page Plus Toledo is closing on that day and the PORT OUT process from Page Plus to any other carrier will then become severely delayed, because Tracfone is taking over the PORT OUT process that Page Plus currently handles. That means that porting out of Page Plus will require an extra 1-3 days of delay time after 01/16/2015."
You don't HAVE to do anything. We have an entire team working on ports right now, nearly around the clock. If your autopay expires in the next 3 days, you're likely to stay put for right now. If it expires after that, we'll get to you. Don't worry.
The world is not ending. We're just delayed.
