Cell phones become mobile

I’ve been waiting for tomorrow for a long time. The rest of the country has been waiting for tomorrow for a long time. And that time has finally arrived.

Wireless number portability is now here.

Canada is finally catching up with the rest of the world and unshackling phone numbers from phone companies. My number is mine alone, and I’ll be taking it wherever I want!

I’ve already decided to switch. I’ve been with Bell for a couple years now, and although the plan I’m on is pretty good, the reception is often deplorable.

When I’m sitting at my desk at the office, on the 17th floor of a 17-storey building surrounded by no other taller or as-tall buildings, I lose calls within a few seconds of answering them every time. So I’m anxious to try another provider to see if their towers are more advantageously located.

Tomorrow will mark a momentous day for consumers in Canada. It has been a long time coming.

  1. Try out with co-workers – it depends on both the service provider, specific location, and model of phone, of course.

  2. Yeah that’s probably a good idea before just going out and switching. Whenever I go into those stores I feel like I’m about to get ripped off.
