This will tell the carrier that the number was (originally) assigned to
(before portability): http://www.localcallingguide.com/
Look for the AC/prefix lookup along the right side. Sometimes one more
digit is needed.
What you say is true if the number was either not ported AWAY from
Verizon or a number was ported TO Verizon. Portability tends to screw
things up a bit.
For example - my phone number is on a native Verizon Wireless prefix -
but my wife and stepdaughter's numbers were ported from (then)
Cingular (now at&t Mobility). So even though we're all on Verizon now,
using Local Calling Guide won't necessarily work for our case.
Over time, portability will also cover landlines to cellular, and then
you have no clue what is what. :)
I ported a landline number to cell probably two years ago. One thing I can say is VZWs lookup seems to be accurate. I know someone who ported their landline to VZW and it showed up quickly as IN network eligible and they recently decided they had to have an iphone and the change that his number was no longer IN network showed up quickly.
BTW - Local Calling Guide is a great resource in general. Been using
it for several years.
