I called the Porting Department of Consumer Cellular directly, since the last Customer Service Rep gave me their number after about 4 previous calls. Once I reached the representative, he was able to conference me in to his call with Tracfone. They sent me a code to verify my current phone and then they released my number and they at long last were able to port my phone number over. I just tested it from my work phone and the new iPhone rings when you call my number. At long last, success!
Now I have to copy all of my old contacts over manually. My dumb phone is so old there is no easy way to transfer--I spent about 45 minutes a while ago copying all of the phone numbers I had in there and I need to make sure that they are in my contacts. I think my gmail contacts are already in there but a lot of the phone numbers I call most often--like my work colleagues--are not in the gmail but just in the old phone.
Very relieved this is done!
