i just switched over from verizon on the 22nd of this month and wondered how long it takes for my old account at verizon to close? When i go online, the account is still active. Thinking i might have to call them even though i had my old phone number switched over to AT & T. I didn't call verizon because i read that when you port your number the company you are leaving automatically close's your account.
Porting your number from another carrier, should cancel it out, and its usually done as soon as the port is completed.
Sometimes that doesn't always happen. If your AT&T service is working with the number that you ported in, and the Verizon account is still active, then you should call Verizon customer service and have them cancel it...
But, if the porting process isn't completely done, then hold off for a couple days to make sure it goes through completely (otherwise you jeopardize your existing #)

Thank you for your reply. The porting process is complete. I was thinking maybe verizon was just slow in showing it on my account online. I will contact them.

With Verizon, the account doesn't close completely until the end of the current billing cycle that you are in, even though you have ported your number over to another carrier. I recently ported my Verizon number over to AT&T, and it took almost a month for them to send me out a confirmation notice that I now have a zero balance, and my account has been closed.......
It was the same way for me as well.. I thought it odd. But it's their policy I guess.
