Well, I don't know what happens when some numbers get ported to another carrier and then to another, shouldn't that parent provider or FCC (as these are under some regional dial plan) keep some records like where these numbers have been ported to and/or records of change or ownership? I think most numbers are bound to SSN of individuals or some corporates. I might be wrong.
Just curious. Having said that we still can't port numbers between carriers. Wish we could have our old numbers back!
