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.
