    How incoming calls are routed for ported numbers

    When a phone number, say, 416-1234567 is ported to one provider from another provider (cell or land-line), are incoming calls at 416-1234567 (initially) routed via that old provider network/infrastructure/hardware?

    As opposed to routing for "native", non-ported numbers.

    Thanks.

    No. Number is mapped in SS7 to route to the new providers translation numbers directly.
