    It was my understanding that the telephone number must be relative to the
    geographic locale of the account holder's billing address......

    For porting, that's true. But Sprint PCS, for example,=20
    allows a customer to keep a phone number no matter where=20
    they move unless they specifically ask to change their area=20
    code. So a SPCS customer who joined in, say, Houston,=20
    moved four times while a customer with us, and is now in,=20
    say, Chicago, *could* still have their original Houston=20
    number. But it could not port to another carrier now that=20
    he's in Chicago.

    --=20

    I work for SprintPCS
    I *don't* speak for them.
