Cell Number to Land-Line... Number Portibility question..

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by ,.·*`~ Adam ~`*·.,, Oct 25, 2003.

  1. I had a question about the Number Portability issue. I Don't know if
    this has been covered.. I tried searching but couldn't find anything
    in my archives.

    If you have a business that is run through a cell phone at the
    present time and were interested in moving it to a land based line, is
    this possible? Can you take your cell number to a land-line company
    and use it so you wouldn't have to make all new letter-head, business
    cards, contacts etc? Or are you limited to movement within the
    wireless industry only with this number portibility?

    Thanks for any responses in advance.

    As the plan is set to take affect on 11-24-03 it's for wireless only
    in the top 100 markets. There is some work afoot to make wireless and
    wireline interchangeable, but I believe that's still up in the air and
    is not part of the November 24 mandate.

    Thinking of the thread about SunCom's local unlimited service with no
    LD nationwide charges, Landline may be obsolete for anyone's house,
    very soon.....making this moot.

    At the moment the carriers are focusing on portability from cell carrier
    to cell carrier, though Verizon Wireless has stated on their web site they
    also plan to support landline to cellular portability. There is no mention
    of cellular to landline portability, and I doubt the carriers will be in
    any hurry to implement this, though I'm sure it is technically possible,
    within the scope of the same limitations as cell carrier-to-cell carrier
    and landline-to-cell carrier portability.

    Just a guess.

    And how does this make the number portability thing moot? Whether
    they're offering all you can eat plans has nothing to do with whether
    or not you can port your land line number to your wireless service.

    Well, duhhh....He won't NEED to portable it to a landline because "all

    it?.....duhhhh....(c;

    Depends on your need for reliability. They still have a ways
    to go to match landline. I think government still takes the
    view that landline is a critical service. Cell service is not.

    -Quick

    Then there are the services still geared for landline only
    like security systems that dial out.
