Why Do I Still Have A Dial Tone

Number ported to AT&T cell, confirmed all around. So why is there still a dial tone on the landline? Called out to another cell, my old landline number shows.

Called repairs, as I was advised on online chat with Verizon. The run around, she tells me the line is not owned by Verizon, mentions Cingular. Try and point out this was a landline up until two days ago and over 60 years in the family. Holding recent Verizon bill in hand, she says I'm not going to argue with you, not too interested in helping. Ask for supervisor, many minutes on hold, then a disconnect. Why is there a dial tone, anyone?
