RE: Portable numbers not seen as imminent

Looks like we’re going to have to wait a while to switch to Bell everyone.

Canadians won’t be able to take their mobile phone numbers with them when they switch companies until at least seven out of 10 people have a wireless phone, Bell Mobility Inc. president Michael Neuman believes.

More than four of 10 Canadians today have a mobile phone and some analysts believe it will take until about 2015 to reach seven of 10.

Stupid CRTC doesn’t make ANY smart decisions. They need to listen to consumers more and ignore the payoffs from the telecommunications industry! In the meantime I am stuck with Telus (which is still better than you poor suckers on Rogers or Fido!).
