Can I take my cell phone number with me..#1
Posted: 11/16/07 at 6:58pm
if I am in the middle of a 2 year contract with T-Mobile and I want to switch to AT&T--as long as I pay the T-Mobile cancellation fee?

I was told you can't take your number with you unless if you finish your contract with your current service provider.

Thanks in advance!

Your picture isn't working... but really, I'm not looking for a silly response.

Wouldn't it be easier and faster to call T-Mobil's customer service, I believe it's a free call.

Here's what the FCC has to say. You don't have to be at the end of a contract to take your number with you.

I just cancelled a contrct with Verizon wireless and was able to take my number to AT&T. Of course I had to pay the cancellation fine. The number is yours to transfer.

Is AT&T supposed to be better than Verizon? I have Verizon now and my contract is almost up and I don't want to do another one with them.

Yes, they legally must allow you to take your number with you. Just go to AT&T and they can transfer the number over to your new account. I did this when switching from Verizon to Cingular - it's very easy.

Has anyone tried the whole iPhone hacking business stuff? Should I try it or just pay the 200 dollars to switch over legally? I know people always find ways around AT&T's blockings, but then AT&T turns it around and installs a new firmware..which could be a huge pain to keep on being blocked...

Number portability is a good thing - see, sometimes the government does help you out!

Parks, do yourself a favor and switch over legally. Once you try to crack the the iPhone, Apple says all guarentees and warentees are void.
