    A directory of cell phone numbers will soon be published for all consumers
    to have access to. This will open the doors for solicitors to call you on
    your cell phones, using up the precious minutes that we pay lots
    of money for!


    The Federal Trade Commission has set up a "do not call" list. It is called a
    cell phone registry. To be included on the "do not call" list, you must call
    from the number you wish to register. The number is 1-888-382-1222 OR you
    can go to their web site at www.donotcall.gov
    and add your number to the do not call list.
    Give this to friends who have cell phones.

    Also remember if you are switching companies you can now take your number with you! You can even change your land line number to a cell phone number.

    No, simply contact the new company they will take care of the porting of your number. If you change your mind remember to contact only the company you originally placed the order to port your number to as well.

    True..but if you close the account with the port number before that new company is contacted yer out of luck.
    It's safe to give it a few days.

    O..I see I mis-typed a post or so above...Get the new service before you cancel the old. Or a least be sure they have your number in hand.

    Well, if before it actually ports to the new company you want to cancel the port you need to contact the company that you wanted to port to. Since they originally entered the port order with the LEC or CLEC they are the ones that need to cancel it. If you contact them before the number ports they can cancel the order and you are back to the original company with no fuss.

    I know. My whole point was you must get the ball rolling with the new co. BEFORE you cancel the old in order to port. Otherwise there is no number to port..lots of folks don't understand that.

    Actually you shouldn't even cancel at all with the old. Your new company will do that all for you.

    (This is what I actually do for a living.)
