Wireless Number Portability

Finally, in a couple of years we can keep our cell number when you change carrier...it's a scam that you cannot keep the same cell number...

From Digital Home Canada:
On March 14th, 2007, almost four years after it was implemented in the United States Canadians will finally be able to take their phone number with them when they switch wireless carriers...

...The cell phone industry has been resisting the implementation of number portability because it removes a major impediment for consumers wishing to switch service providers. Previously, despite the government’s insistence for number portability, the industry had made little or no effort to plan for its implementation. According to cell phone providers, the implementation of number portability is a massive and complex undertaking and requires extensive analysis and preparation.

Yes, sounds like the scam is finally coming to an end...
