The rep lied. They do not have to suspend your number and in fact if they do that then you will not be able to do the port. You have now informed them you will be porting. Leave it at that. Do the port. When the scam you for the 30 days of dead air, file a CCTS complaint and they will have Rogers refund the funds. Their system does not even allow them to enter a 30 day notice, though they require it in their contract, so it is a total scam.
Some people have even turned the table on Rogers. They dispute the dead air charges with their credit card company, explaining they were charged for services that were never rendered. The card company reverses the charges and Rogers knows better than to try to collect on the charges. The CCTS refund also gets issued, so customer ends up getting paid to leave. If someone is getting money for nothing and if Rogers wants to encourage that sort of ethical behavior, I guess they deserve it when it happens to them.
