Time For a New Phone?

Just saw on MSNBC that I could, in theory, keep my phone number if I switch wireless carriers. The downside? It probably wouldn't actually work.

The other downside is that the Samsung I currently have is the only one I've seen that allows multiple phone numbers per entry. For example, instead of "DadHome" and "DadCell" I have an entry "Dad" that contains home and cellular numbers I can pick from whenever I call my father (usually to borrow money). An extra step sometimes, but I like it better.

So... if I find a phone that does the same thing, and if the phone works on the Verizon network, which I'd probably switch to after seeing many good things about it, and if I can keep my current number, I think it's new-phone time.

My Verizon phone does that.

I have the LG VX6000. I can store 2 home numbers, 2 office numbers, 2 cell numbers, and 1 pager number per entry. I can also store X number of e-mail addresses, where X >= 3 (the most I've entered).
It also takes and e-mails pictures.

Cool, I'll have to remember that. I haven't been looking since I figure the keeping-the-number thing woun't happen for a while yet, but I'm hoping it happens sooner than later.
