    My dad is using Sprint, and on his bill they are charging him xx dollars
    a month for number portability. Is this legal since we cant change his
    number yet? He wants to switch to either att or tmobile whenever he
    can, but he wants to keep his number.

    I agree, asking a question that has been soooo over hashed without
    bothering to seach previous NG threads is silly...BUT, if your
    news server expires messages after 30 days, you may never know the
    topic was even cussed or discussed.

    Sorry the other are insulting instead of helping you.

    1. Apparently they can charge now. They claim its to recover their costs
    to implemnt Number Portability.

    2. A lawsuit saying that fee is a violation of contract and people
    should be allowed to quit withour penalty resulted in a CA judge giving
    an injunction to allow that until Auguest 31.

    3. Number portabilty takes effect on November 23, although Sprint may
    charge a fee for that, on top of the monthly fee.

    4. As bad a Sprint Customer Service is, AT&T and TMobile aren't much
    better, and in most places their cellular coverage has more holes in it
    than Sprint's does.

    This comment shows that, unfortunately, the same cannot be said about
    you.

    Which points out a question: does anybody regularly post a a.c.s FAQ?

    If not, I volunteer.

    You have access to phonescoop.com but not Google? Not denying your
    claim but wondering the theory behind that.

    It may not be ethical, but it is not illegal.

    No, no one has, as we all have jobs and don't have the time to coordinate
    the information on phones or the system ... A lotta history, and no time to
    put it together. If you want to do something, go fer it ... You might get
    some help from the other posters who can offer some history and current
    information.

    That's exactly what it is.

    That's not what it says. It says our contract lets people out for
    implementing it.

    As may Verizon, Nextel, AT&T...

    Our network is the largest (in square miles covered) in the country. But
    one should seek out others in their area with Sprint coverage to find out if
    that leads to coverage at home.

    As Justin's grief demonstrated, Sprints maps are a fiction and have many
    undocumented dead spots and holes. So are other cellular companies, but
    thats no excuse for Sprint's dishonesty.

    But its OK for the other companies to lie? Look at Verizon's coverage
    maps, they blanket the whole country, yet I know very large areas tha
    they claim they have coverage, but they do not. Sprint's maps are
    roughly 99% accurate, they show where they definitely do not have
    coverage, yet other just blot the whole country in color.

    Others would strongly disagree with your 99% figure. More likely closer
    to 80%.


    FLAME ON

    It's not OK for other companies to lie, and CERTAINLY NOT OK FOR SPRINT
    TO EXCUSE ITSELF FROM LYING CAUSE OTHER COMPANIES MAY BE LYING.


    FLAME OFF

    The largest? I have a friend who explained (or tried to explain) that
    the older companies such as Verizon and Nextel had much larger
    networds in terms of the square miles covered.
