    Former ALLTEL Customers will NEVER get GPS until they change to a VERIZON phone #

    yeah....
    that's what a tech for verizon just told me
    when Alltel broke up, they had to promise to give their phone numbers BACK to the LANDLINE folks by 2011...
    so, until i change to a verizon phone number, i'll NEVER get GPS capability
    is this even remotely possible?

    i've had my number for 15 years....
    i'm a physician
    i am not giving it up...
    will i really have to?

    help..... please

    yes....
    you CAN do that
    but....
    they say your current number... which you brought from ALLTEL
    must be SURRENDERED by the end of 2010
    yeah...
    i don't believe it, either
    but.... that's what the guy said from VERIZON TECH
    no kidding

    there's lots of reports online of people having trouble porting Alltel numbers to Verizon. In some cases it may be due to Verizon having to agree to divest itself of Alltel assets in some markets which might include the phone numbers themselves. I read some stuff about how if you had ported your number to another service earlier you could have kept it but it all seems very confused and people complain about not being able to get a straight, consistent answer.

    yeah....
    i wish i could get the same answer twice, as well
    the main thing....
    i'm not giving up my number
    i cannot
    it's ridiculous to assume anyone would
    if it's true....
    and the words gets out to the community.... there will be some uproar and i'm sure it'll be rectified if enough folks complain
    time will tell

    If it's true about VZW having to give up all the Alltell numbers.

    You Will lose your number. It's that simple.

    Hah, my VZW tech didn't know the Droid has WiFi...

    Just suffice to say, Verizon techs and salesfolk are just now getting their Droids. Most of us know more about the Droid than they do.

    Never heard of that before. My number was ported from Nextel to Alltel and now to Verizon. You should be able to keep your number on any network, no matter what.
