If that's the case, not a big deal at all, especially considering the $$ saved. But just curious.
When I switched from AT&T to Verizon last year, I was able to sign up for brand new account with a new number to try it out (I used call forwarding on my AT&T number), and a couple weeks later (I think it was 30 days back then vs 14 now) just call Verizon and start a number port to the same phone/account. That process took a couple hours at most.

Beware though that I had bought the phone direct from Verizon -- I don't know how doing the above affects the extra termination fee that Amazon et all charges if you cancel. The main account login changes to the new (old) number; it depends whether they key off that or another underlying account code. You'd want to check with both Verizon and Amazon to see if that's allowed.
