Replying to:  YOU THINK LNP WILL BE LIFE SAVER FOR CELL COMPANIES? by cookie137   Nov 19, 2003, 4:05 PM

Not the most educated statement ive heard. In actuality, when the feds mandated LNP, all the wireless companies were fighting it tooth and nail. There is no conspiracy here! In fact, it is costing the companies millions of dollars a year. That is why many companies are charging new fees for LNP. I know, however, for a fact that VZW will not charge any customer any new fees for porting their #. Why would the companies fight this new mandate, you ask? Because when a customer signs a contract and establishes a phone number, they then give out that # to business contacts and family members. Wireless companies are betting on this so that the customer will, to simply avoid the hassle of giving out new nubers, stay with the original company. With LNP taking effect 11/24/03 these companies can no longer depend on those customers. The focus now will be on those wireless companies with excellent customer service and coverage area.
