If you are porting your AT&T phone number to Comcast Digital Voice service, you will not need to contact AT&T as your old AT&T service will automatically END when the porting has been completed.

Thank you for your response.  One more question... by "port" does that mean bring our ATT phone number with us?  Which is what we did.  So how will we know when the porting is complete?  Like now, we can make calls out, but when someone calls in they can hear the phone ring and ring, but it doesn't ring out loud on our side so we don't know we have  had a call.  Is that a phone issue or a porting issue?  I am so clueless about this stuff!

Porting means to bring your old number with you to your new service provider (Comcast).  When the porting is complete, your AT&T service will be automatically terminated.  At that time, ensure that you go to your outside DMARC and unplug the AT&T service jack from your terminals.
