    Until number portability goes into effect, you can check the area code
    and prefix at http://www.primeris.com/fonefind/

    <<Hello, just got unlimited PCS-to-PCS on my cell phone. I know if
    another PCS customer leaves you a vm, when you check your vm, it'll say
    that person's name, and thus you can tell they have a PCS phone. Is
    there any other way to determine if a cell you're calling is a PCS
    user?>>

    What I do if I am curious... I wait until my night and weekend minutes
    kick in and I call my voicemail. Option 2 is send a message... it will
    prompt you for the phone number of the PCS voice mailbox... if the phone
    # you are entering is not a PCS phone, the system will say "Sorry, that
    is an invalid number." If it is a PCS phone number, the system will
    repeat the number back to you (if the person does not have a recorded
    name) or play the person's name for you.

    Hope this helps.

    Except that Virgin Mobile phone numbers will be listed as Sprint
    Spectrum's but calls to those numbers are not counted against your
    PCS2PCS minutes. How can one find out if the number is SPCS's or Virgin's?

    Try sending a msg via http://www.myphonefiles.com/main.php3
    , 'express-sms one-way msg' in the left frame. After you send a
    message this way a popup tells you what service the target has.

    Will be interested to hear if it shows SPCS or Virgin.
