    Sprint, Nextel partner for number portability
    Nextel Communications and Sprint today announced the completion of their
    first Service Level Agreement (SLA) for wireless number portability. The SLA
    will help subscribers of both carriers take their wireless phone numbers
    between non-affiliated networks. Both companies said they are preparing
    their internal systems and business processes for the number portability
    deadline. Both carriers said that they have had difficulty forming number
    portability agreements, claiming that the FCC has failed to provide them
    with sufficient guidance. Until this summer, carriers continued to stall
    their plans for number portability, hoping that the FCC would delay the
    deadline. Verizon Wireless was the first service provider to abandon this
    position and openly embrace the deadline, which the carrier hopes will allow
    it to poach subscribers from its rivals. The FCC's number portability
    mandate goes into effect on November 24.

    Most likely, he didn't see it. He cross posted it to every cellular
    newsgroup.

    Let me ask you a question? What is the benefit in your pointing this fact
    out ? Will it go away? Is it possible the original posters news server is
    slow and hadnt showed up yet?

    Rene, your seemingly clever retort is both flawed logically as well as more
    annoying than the implied offense you apply it too.

    Carl, a lovely retort if I may add. Why in the hell someone wants me to
    scroll down to the bottom of a page to get the information I require, I'll
    never know. I guess some people are just slow, and need to read e v e r y
    line so they can u n d e r s t a n d what is up.
    But then again, anyone that spends the time that he (or she) does worrying
    about "the evil top poster's" kind of speaks for itself. I believe the song
    says it best "Tooo Much Time On My Hands".

    Can I say the word "again"?
    I expected this contract. Sprint has been nicer than Verizon on this
    one, they didn't barge in and leap into a technology that was still
    protected. VZW has me puzzled, it is as if they want to bully their way
    through every one in their desperation to become the only cell phone
    company in America. It will never happen. Sprint and Nextel are
    determined to stay in there- and why shouldn't they? Both of them have
    some of the biggest business line ups in the states.
    For example: Sprint has the Army, Boeing, and the LDS Church, to name
    a few of their corporate activities. Nextel also provides several
    business contracts. Why shouldn't they co-operate a little in service
    coverage for their clients, many of whom are the same organizations.

    Nice post. I think you're right on the nose concerning VZW. They remind me
    a lot of Microsoft- throw enough money around, and you'll eventually get
    your way, no matter how bad your product is.
