I'm moving...Cell Phone Question
 
I'm moving so I'm wondering...

I'm in the middle of a cell phone contract. I don't know how this works since I haven't moved while owning a cell phone too, but can I switch numbers to my new area code? Cancel that contract while getting a new contract with the same company? or do I have to just wait till the contract runs out?

You should be able to get the same company to switch your number, provided they have service in that new area.

Do you need a new phone number? Area codes are becoming less and less important these days. And I would expect the cell phone company to want you to fulfill your contract, or pay an outrageous opt-out fee.

Not everyone has free LD on their cell phones, and i'd venture even less have reasonable LD on their home phones.

It would probably be cheaper and easier to pay for the long distance addition to the cell phone than get out of the contract.

When I moved from Orlando to Raleigh-Durham area this summer, I was halfway through a 2 year Sprint contract. To change my phone number, they had to renew my contract, so I'm now only 6 months into it instead of 6 months from it being over. I'd say keep your old # if you can.

I plan on moving to FL fro school later next year and I am going to keep my old cell number. It will still be a local call for my friends and family if I do otherwise its a longdistance call for them. I'd still get charged either way.

Note : I would be Damned before I let them "make" me renew my contract.... They could shove it....

T-Mobile did not require a contract renewal for my sister. She moved from Alabama to Florida & they just gave her a new phone number. She was not under contract at the time either.

When I signed up for Sprint service a couple of years ago, I was informed that the early contract ending fee would be waived if the place I moved to did not have Sprint service. How easy it is to convince them, I'm not sure.
