..the ability to 'carry' mobile numbers from carrier to carrier, that is. AND to get it done in a few hours will be a huge bonus.<br><br>Regulators want cell phone numbers switched in 2 hours<br><br>

it would be cool if you could carry that number with you wherever you live around the world. basically, every person would be given a number when he/she gets born and that number would stay with the person forever...<br><br>

I know how some people here would react to the idea that you have a number that you carry with you from birth to death. It's a conspiracy! The number of the beast! FDR was Satan!<br><br> Alas, poor Yorick. -- Hamlet
