Plugged In: Phone Numbers Are Soon to Go Mobile Too
Posted: 29-Mar-2003 [Source: Reuters]

[US FCC expected to keep November 24 deadline enforcing number portability allowing customers to switch carriers while retaining the same phone number.]

by Yukari Iwatani, Chicago -- "Life is about to get a little simpler for mobile phone users, who may soon avoid the hassle of changing phone numbers when switching wireless service providers, making it easier to take advantage of discount calling plans.

Sure, it's not quite the greatest thing since sliced bread, but it's a change that will make it easier for people to keep in touch, no matter who manages the calls.

Starting in November, U.S. regulators will enforce a rule that requires wireless operators to offer "number portability," the ability to switch carriers without making consumers give up their telephone number."
