    What's up with the limited selections of local telephone exchange numbers?
    I cant even get an exchange number to call from my home phone without
    getting charged. (I live in populated area). The local Verizon store didn't
    have much to say about it.

    The problem is that most wireless carriers don't have exchanges in each
    and every city. And on top of that, a lot of landline phone companies
    have very small calling areas.

    Do you know for a fact that there is a Verizon exchange that is a local
    calling area to you? If so, maybe the exchanges are full and they
    haven't get gotten any more exchanges for relief.

    Look at the following website and do a search on your local landline
    prefix, and then determine if a VZW prefix is local, and what ones are
    there.

    Thanks Dave; There's nothing that's local from my exchange. Right now I'm
    debating whether to go with Nextel or Verizon & that's one more reason to go
    with Nextel - They both have good coverage for the areas I'm interested in.

    Verizon has been rolling out exchanges in outlying areas throughout
    Virginia for about a year now. In almost all these cases, the numbers are
    within a local landline Verizon exchange. That is, a portion of the
    exchange is standard landline phone service, and a portion is dedicated to
    wireless phone service. Examples include the 540-672 exchange in Orange,
    Virginia and the 804-994 exchange in Dawn, Virginia.

    Numbers in this type of setup are always limited in functionality. Text
    messaging usually works about 10% of the time, and you will be unable to
    send/receive inter-carrier SMS without the use of a full e-mail address.
    Caller ID is generally unavailable, but will usually work on calls to/from
    other VZW customers. Sometimes Call Forwarding is unavailable, or works
    erratically. But, these numbers are okay for people who are looking for a
    local number and care more about voice calls and a local number than
    working features.
