my understanding (which goes back 8 years or so), is that you can move numbers around within teh same type of phone= house, contracted cell, or pre-paid/pay-as-you-go cell - but you can't take a number from home to cell, pre-paid to contract, etc. But, it's been 8 years since i've worked selling cell phones (but not by the sea shore), so i don't knwo if the laws have changed.<quoted text>
ARe you sure they can't keep their numbers? I switched to another pre-paid phone and was able to keep my number.
Hell, i'm almost at thepoint of askign hubby to take them on our plan just to get her to STFU. my dad doesn't care, as long as he can call and the equipment works and keypad locks, he's all good.
