What I like just as good...

"The Inquiry seeks comment from the industry on whether or not the FCC should change the telephone numbering system's current relationship with subscriber location."

This would free up a lot of numbers, because how many number are not being used because that area code is over a large rural area and to use all the numbers would be nearly impossible to use all of those numbers. It would then give big city more numbers to use.

I'm also guilty of moving and keeping the same number, most of my friends do not have a local number.
Guilty? Why should you feel guilty for moving and having the same number!

My current number is area code (203) Ct, I've had it since the summer of 2009 while still living in Last Vegas which is area code (702), what???

Finally catching up

Most other countries already have Phone numbers available through a VoIP provider, and some will even give them to you for FREE. I'm surprised this isn't already available in the US.

I use a voip service called Text+, I think it's based out of Sweden, when I signed up, they gave me, for free, a phone number that can also receive incoming calls, and can be called from anywhere in the world. I have never given them a single cent of real money and they gave me my own phone number.
Yes its not bad. But they realistically only give you like 1 minute of free voice minutes. The rest you would have to pay to make calls using that voip number. You can text all day on it tho which is pretty cool.
