NightFire Software Inc. and Harris Interactive(SM) surveyed mobile phone users in the U.S. to gauge how important wireless number portability (WNP) is to them. Of 1,616 mobile phone users polled, 56 percent said it was extremely or very important to them to be able to keep their phone number when changing wireless service providers. The FCC recently announced it would review whether to delay the deadline for implementing WNP, currently set for Nov. 24, or withdraw the WNP mandate altogether. Many of the larger carriers have been petitioning the FCC to delay or eliminate the mandate, claiming high costs and lack of consumer demand.
