Do I manually cancel my services with my current provider?

Port out policies vary by provider but most will honor the transfer date as the Stop Billing date and automatically terminate the line. You may still want to contact them 24 hours after the number transfers to ensure they have canceled the line on their end and stopped billing. You should not cancel your line until you receive a notification from Line2 that the transfer is complete.
