But the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association said a start date has not yet been set for number portability, a feature long demanded by consumer advocates. As it now stands, customers who change mobile phone companies are forced to change numbers, discouraging many from shopping around. But under the proposed changes, customers will be allowed to keep the same phone number when changing service providers within the same local service area. Consumers also will be able to keep the same phone number when transferring their landline phone service to wireless service and vice versa."</i><br /><br /> :clap:

I am sure that Robbers (rogers) will no doubt have tigher plans to lock people into contracts.. but at least the situation is getting better.
