    To port a number, it must be active

    If your new carrier is Straight Talk, you never really left you could say. Just saying..
    v Speed Test with my Motorola Droid in AL. Droid Does (and so Does Verizon).

    Speed Test with my Motorola Droid in Birmingham, AL. Droid Does (and so Does Verizon).^

    Speed Test with DSL internet with AT&T(Bellsouth). Horrible.

    Not sure what not so good terms means. If you have a past due balance they aren't going to release the line.

    The FCC doesn't allow companies to "hold a number hostage" for having a past due bill. But if the bill has gone unpaid for a while your number will have been canceled.

    It means he skipped out on the bill because he doesn't feel he should pay for services rendered to him that he agreed to pay for.
    Verizon Wireless - More bars in more places on the now network.
    Every time you ask whether you can use a VZW smartphone without a data plan, God kills a kitten.
    And by God, I mean me - and by kitten, I mean many kittens. So many kittens.

    They'll send a collection agency after you...but you probably already have crappy credit.

    wrong...they don't have a choice in the matter--I hope you aren't really an agent! The phone will be blacklisted though and so it can't be sold and then reactivated.

    Everyone complains about how the cell phone companies try to rip people off but the FCC is so in bed with certain groups that it is the consumer who they claim to be helping that actually gets screwed. Basically the FCC says that if you decide you don't want service with VZN or whoever any more you can walk away and there isn't a whole lot they can do about it no matter what kind of contract you have agreed to.

    If ever you really want to get sick check out how the CATV companies are allowed to put it to everyone including every other company with the FCC's blessing. I used to be deeply involved in contract negotiations between CATV companies and utilities or cities. All of a sudden one day the FCC wiped out all of those contracts and told the utilities or cities what the CATV companies would do and how much they would pay. At the same time they told the CATV companies they could charge their customers whatever they wanted to with no oversight.

    However, once a consumer has requested service from a new carrier, the old carrier may not delay or refuse to port a number even if that individual owes money for an outstanding balance or termination fee.

    Maybe the op feels he owes Verizon nothing and that's his choice not to pay the bill. I'm sure the op is aware about collections hurting a credit report.

    Is this the out the country suspension or is it the not pay your bill suspension, either way you should be able to port. None of that excuses any balances due.
