Home phone numbers set to roam

It is about time that consumers were able to binefit for the innovations that we’ve been paying for over the past few decades.

There made sense back in the day when you had to get a new telephone number when you moved.  Relays made the telephone system work.  When you dialed a number a relay clicked the same number of times as the number you dialed.  That is why when you visit your grandmother in Hurtsboro, you here these strange clicking noises when you use the phone.  Anyway, the relays were set for the area code and for the exchange they were located in.

But since the digital age, there aren’t any relays in telephone switches.  Everything is programmed from a keyboard.  Which also means that any switch can handle any area code and exchange.

Anyway, STARTING NOV. 24, consumers will be able to switch wireless carriers without giving up their telephone numbers. They will also be able, under certain conditions, to shift their number between a traditional home phone and wireless phone quotes http://www.msnbc.com/news/990155.asp

Now it makes more sense to make the local telephone offer the services that we need.

“Make ‘em pay!”
