v. To move a phone number from one carrier or type of service to another; p.t., ported.

n. The act of porting a number.
I got a cell phone and ported the landline number to my cell phone. It was only supposed to take a week or so to port the number, but it took two months, instead.

The port went through yesterday, only no one bothered to tell me. I've had my cell phone turned off most of the time since no one could call it any way until the number is ported, so when I turned it on this morning it suddenly had four voice mails waiting.

In rowing terms, port can refer to a rower whose oar is on the left side of the boat. Ports are generally less attractive and powerful than their counterparts, starboards, and do not contribute nearly as much to the speed of the boat as starboards do. This is most likely because starboards are genetically superior due to the fact that when a champion mates with another champ (ahhhh), a starboard is born.
Studies have shown that port rowers are 30% more likely than starboards to fail in areas outside of rowing and are also 13% less likely to find true happiness or fulfillment in life.
Starboard1: "Wow Kate is so hot and amazing at rowing, I can't believe that she's a port."
Starboard2: "Actually, that's because Kate is a starboard!"
Starboard1: "I should've known."
Port: "WoOOoOoOooo I can make bubbles in the water!"
Starboards: "Shut up port."

Short for Newport, a menthol cigarette that is popular because it is known to boost your high when you smoke weed.
