getting a residential number back that did not port out

In January I initiated a port-out from Verizon FIOS to Comcast, but pulled out of Comcast during its 30-day money back period. I pulled out before the number completely ported from Verizon to Comcast.

But the request already had been initiated and Verizon told me the number did get ported out. I said the request did not complete on the Comcast end. The problem is that Comcast does not have the number either; they told me it's still with Verizon. This is all circular and I am stuck.

Verizon provided me with a temporary number and said that after sixty days my previous number should be available to be claimed. It's now been nearly seventy days and Version continues to say the number is showing as ported out. 

I have been on the phone with Verizon two separate times, each one a long call with a customer service rep, and no joy. Any advice or suggestions are welcome.

Should it be useful to others, this problem is resolved by asking for a 'snapback' on the initial number. Verizon recognizes that some port-outs do not happen and have a procedure for reversing them.

My phone number of nearly 30 years did not port and I am stuck in the circular loop of trying to reach customer service. I am just referred to online support or chat, but never to anyone who can actually solve the problem and give me back my number.
