Chicago resident here and am trying to port from Verizon to Google. I had success porting this number to Google Voice once before although it was around 8 years ago (I think when the very first version of the Nexus came out, I was with Sprint at the time). Do we have a status update from when this issue started over a month ago? Btw, number trying to port is 815-978-XXXX originally a Rockford, IL number.
Any feedback would be helpful and greatly appreciated.

This is the most exhaustive reply I have seen to date. Thank you, I was hoping for something this detailed. While it does explain the history and setup of the way blocks, ports and switches work,  it does not explain why I would have been able to port the number to GV 8 years ago and can't now. Unless I overlooked something in your reply.... 

My question then becomes two fold:
1. who do I reach out to to get my block/port released or how can i find the company responsible? 
2. If that isn't possible, what is a good alternative to GV to keep my number yet allow me to move it between devices (preferably at little to no cost)? On this last point a friend of mine mentioned getting a cheap prepay and forward my text/calls for a nominal 90 day cost attached to auto-refill.
