Pollol coming.

Someone asked me yesterday, "Is your number still XXX-XXX-XXXX." I said yes, of course, but I was thinking in my head was "Who the eff changes their number anymore?"
And I realized I've had the same mobile phone number since 1997 or 1998.

I actually have a smartphone as my work cell phone that I use all the time, but I actually still pay about $60 a month so I can retain my personal phone/ phone number because I don't want to give it up.

I wonder, will the phone company retain my number if I pay them a small monthly fee (say $10)? I want to be able to turn it back on in case my work takes away my smartphone privileges. Anyone know?

Oh, and the answer is about 8 years or so.

If you aren't under contract you can probably just drop it to the cheapest plan which is probably $60 because smartphone.

Its complicated.

I have a family plan with my wife, she has a smartphone on that account and I don't. My smartphone is on my work plan.

My contract is over next month though...but it won't matter, I have to either leave and have my wife on a single plan or stay on the family plan (which is already the cheapest family plan with Sprint $130 for 1500 minutes and unlimited text and data).

I was hoping that I could pay Sprint like $10 a month to keep my line though....I guess I have to call them and negotiate.

Why not just transfer your number to a Vonage or something like that and forward it to the work phone?

I actually do the opposite. Work provides me with a ****ty regular phone but I want to use my Droid and keep my number, so I call forward the work cell number to my Droid. If I'm on vacation and I don't want to receive work calls I just turn off the call forwarding.

I forward my cell phone to my home phone and then forward my home phone to my work phone and then I forward my work phone to my cell phone.

It was indeed a really solid phone. I still have it somewhere.

Same number since fall 1999.


And in a brilliant move by the cellular companies, the ONLY reason I got a cell phone at all was because it was cheaper than paying long-distance calling my friends/family.
