    I'm been thinking of transfering my land number to cell and was wondering is
    that the way to go and can it be done. I would like to drop my cell number I
    been using and have my home phone number transfer and just use my cell phone
    for all calls.

    If I did that well Sprint cancel my BellSouth and have it done within a
    week.

    Take you last BellSouth Bill to Sprint.

    Upon giving up the number, Bell South will close your account, and send
    you a FINAL Bill.

    I *can* be done within a week, but, from the few examples I've seen,=20
    it generally doesn't. Nor, I think, are landline carriers obligated=20
    to move any faster.

    Sorry, a cancelled landline phone is only a wall ornament.

    And often times, not even a pretty ornament.

    'Fraid not. If the line's dead, it's dead.

    You can take comfort however in the fact that all wireless carriers that
    are compatible with your phone are required to give you access to 911.
    So, if for some reason your sprint coverage is knocked out, if there's
    say a verizon or alltell or ATT analog signal present, the 911 call will
    go through one of those networks.

    Also, I have to relate that my recent experiences with landline phones
    leads me to think that the fabled reliability of wireline service in a
    disaster has become a myth, even if it used to be the case a few years
    back. The northeast blackout last year didn't affect us much in the
    Central New Jersey area (just a flicker and a brownout for a minute or
    two), but it was enough to make landline service in my area inoperable
    for a good two hours (you got dialtone, sometimes, but all calls placed,
    when you could place them, went fast-busy). Cell phone service was
    about 50% reliable during the same period... not great, but hey, one
    successful call out of every two was better than nothing, and given that
    no local calls would go through (fast busy due to the landline switch
    being out) it was difficult to tell whose fault that was.

    My guess is that the local Verizon switch wasn't properly rigged to
    float on batteries and suffered the consequences when the power flickered.
