It's very, very common to have "mixed service" for up to 72 hours when porting a number around. All the back-office communication that happens at Verizon to release the number pays no attention at all to whatever timestamps and queues are triggered on the AT&T side of the transaction (i.e. SIM card insertion). All the timing is handled by business systems.
Initiating a port prior to the second phone being activated is expected to interrupt service in most cases.

I found my cellphone number when I was with Cingular and went to Verizon. Per ATT customer service they located my number in their Cingular system and the guy said that no one works in the Cingular area and when my service is finally established I have to call customer service and request a number exchange to get my old number back...I am super excited that it's possible....BTW Cellstudent I hope I made the right choice switching to ATT. I signed up with the ATT next program
