New phone and new provider. When to port?

My new Z Flip 3 is arriving tomorrow! My new SIMs from T-Mobile are also arriving tomorrow. I switched from Consumer Cellular to T-Mobile.

My question is which should I do first? Port my number or set up my new phone? I’m thinking I should port first and make sure everything is working on my old phone first. Then if everything is okay then put the new SIM in my new phone. Any comments or recommendations?

I guess I could always setup my new phone with the new T-Mobile SIM and number and use that temporally. And still have the old SIM in the old phone. I have literally two service providers now until the port is complete. What would you do?
