Subject Cell Phone Number portability (give congress your two cents worth)
Date Wed, 24 Sep 2003 18:22:33 GMT

Did you know that if you switch cell phone carriers, you have no choice but
to change cell phone numbers, too?

That's supposed to change on November 24 - the deadline for cell phone
companies to allow you to keep your cell phone number when you switch
carriers.   It's called number portability and it's a big deal because
consumers will likely see lower prices and better service as carriers try
harder to keep - or attract - business.

Instead of giving consumers freedom of choice, most cell phone companies are
trying to get Congress to pass legislation to delay number portability.
Some even plan to ignore the new rule if they can't get their way in
Washington. Worse, at the same time they are trying to stop number
portability, most cell phone companies are busy collecting $100s of millions
of dollars in number portability fees on cell phone bills.
Congress and the carriers should not stand in the way of this
pro-competition, pro-consumer policy.  Delaying number portability traps
consumers who are frustrated with a CELL HELL of bad service and one-sided
contracts.

Click the link below now to tell Congress you want to be able to take your
number with you if you switch carriers.

Once you've sent your free email to Congress, please take a moment to
forward this email to your friends and family and ask them to join you in
speaking up - it could help lower their cell phone bill, and get them better
quality service, too.  Word of mouth is very important to ensure number
portability happens on time, with all cell phone carriers.

Thank you for your help.
