A number port will deactivate that connection prepay / Postpay and if the account has one connection it will close the account as well

You will be charged disconnection fee's (if applicable) and sent a final account assuming you only have the one mobile on that Vodafone Account.

what if I move my number to Telecom because my new company will pay the bill but I'm only 6 months into a 24 month plan and want to keep it active so I can move my partners number on to my old vodafone plan?

Can I move her number onto my old plan and avoid the disconnection fees as I will keep the plan running?

If I have a mobile number 123456789 on carrier A and port 123456789 to carrier B, Carrier A will close that connection down (deactivate it)

Yes you can, apparently. Customer of mine just did exactly that.

Right, but say number is on a plan, for another year or so, what happens to this?

"On a plan" means you have a term contract with an early disconnection fee? Then you will receive a final bill for the last month expense PLUS the fee to have your contract terminated.
