    Weird question....I was going to purchase a phone from Craigslist today...

    Everything was good. Met guy at store. He ported his numbers to AT&T earlier this month. His bill is totally paid up, no problems there, no balance according to the store employee.

    When I tried to activate it in the VZW store, they said that since he ported his number out, that VZW still shows the number active on the phone until the end of his billing cycle. Is there any way around this to get them to activate it on my account before that time? Will customer service do it or is it simply a lost cause until his billing cycle runs out?

    Nope, no way out, you'll need to wait it out, this happens ALL the time with ported numbers. Sorry bud.
