August 22, 2008, Newsletter Issue #164: Transfer a Landline Number to a Cell Phone

Tip of the Week

Want to transfer a home phone or office phone number to a cell phone? You can if your current cell phone carrier offers service in the same area as the home phone or office phone. The transfer can take up to four days. Transferring landline calls to cellular phones offers the convenience of never missing a call when you're on the go.

Some tips when transferring your landline number:

* You may not want everyone to be able to reach you at any time. If that's the case, invest in call blocking or keep your landline and don't give out your cell phone.
* Unless you're a doctor, cop or other on-call professional, set limits as to when you'll take calls. You do have a right to privacy!
* Take advantage of voicemail and call screening.
* Transferring a landline number can be beneficial if customers need to reach you out in the field.

As the telecom ad says, your office (or home) is now pretty much anywhere.
