I got careless today...
So, I got stupid today and went to Verizon and ported my number into a Thunderbolt. Why am I here, then, you may be thinking? I am going to Verizon tomorrow to return the Thunderbolt as the bill is stupidly high and the 4G interferes with my laptop speakers (?????). Anyway, what I wanted to ask was is there a way to port my number back into my lovely Optimus? I put it back to stock in case the need the activate app.

Should be the same as porting any number to VM.
Supposedly you can do it yourself on their site, but in a rush you may want to call before taking your new phone back.

Don't cancel your Verizon service until you start porting your number back. You don't even have to port it to VM. Port the number to google voice just to preserve it. Once you get your VM account up and running, you can start the procedure to port it over if you want, or just have GV forward the calls to your cell. Either way, you have to keep your Verizon account until the porting back is over.

He should contact VM and ask them to reactivate his account and port his number back. Once that is done take the phone back to Verizon and get a refund or whatever. By not doing anything he is almost certain to get stuck with Big Red money sucker.

I figured. Just as a side note, Verizon is VERY expensive and VERY VERY shady compared to VM. I had to pay a $400 security deposit on top of the $300 for the TBolt. They are very unclear as to how things work unless you pour through the contract.
Here's my plan
I'm gonna head up to Verizon to see if it's even possible to quit and if so if they can port my number back. If they can't port it, but I can quit, I'll call VM and reset that up and return the TBolt.
Wish me luck guys, and if I'm stuck, then you guys were great assistance!

Nvm I was just impatient. All set up again, data and everything. Their tech support is pretty bad though.
