    OK, I understand the benefit of changes such as "take your number with you"
    when you switch carriers, but what's the advantage of the new "home-to-cell
    number" rule where one can switch their home numbers to their cell phones??

    Hi Paul!

    I would imagine that with this new "feature", you could move your home
    service to your cell phone. Meaning, lets say I had my home number for 5
    years and I didn't want to change it. I search around and find that Nextel's
    free incoming plans suited my needs, I could then tell Nextel I wanted to
    start a new account with my home number. Thus, my home number would be
    transferred to Nextel (i.e. disconnected "landline service" but I'd retain
    my landline number and have it placed on my Nextel phone instead of (and
    possibly in addition to.. or soon to come) a cellular number.

    Let's say you give everyone your home number. Then you get a cell
    phone with free incoming minutes. You the want to exclusively use your
    cell phone, simply port the number over.
