OK, Verizon is being dumb. They’re against number portability in cell phones and say it’s not a big deal? They’re afraid of losing customers. I’d jump ship to Verizon in a second if I could keep my number. Sprint’s Bay Area service is pathetic and Verizon’s is reputed to be substantially better. Sprint might be smart to oppose local number portability, but Sprint has that smarmy Sprint PCS guy talking people into buying.
