Hi, I ported my number from Verizon. It happened yesterday. I can still dial out of my old landline today. But incoming calls go to the telo and i can call out of my telo and the cid show up with the ported number. So i can dial out of my landline and my telo and both have the same ported number as their CID.

Does it take a few days for Verizon to turn off the service completely?

Some states have a requirement that the utility continue to provide "soft" dialtone when your line is disconnected. If you live in one of those areas, you will be able to make 911 or calls to the utility even if you have no other service. If you post your state, others will chime in as to what their experience is. I like the feature because your utility co. dialtone is always on - they run the traditional telco's on battery power - so even if the network or your ooma is down you can still make emergency calls. Washington state does not require it so when you disconnect, your line is dead.

I am in WA too. When I dropped my Verizon, the dialtone died a few days later. My friend who lives a few miles away who also dropped Verizon about a year ago still gets a dialtone. I think it is called an Express Dialtone; the purpose is to provide an easy way for folks to sign up to phone service but also allows 911 calls. Same company within the same general area, with inconsistent behavior. :?
