    but you never know: I'm about to start up with a new provider, switching my number: I have about 2-3 weeks left in the contract, if I make the switch with a week remaining on the Sprint contract, they don't care as long as I pay my last bill, correct? more importantly, I guess, can they make it difficult for me to switch my old number over to the new provider?

    I agree with you until the point where you say porting your number over. . . . .obviously, if you keep paying your bill, you are not terminating your contract early and the associated fee should not be charged.. . . .

    However, asking for your number to be moved before the contract is up. . . . adds a new wrinkle -- and I think the only answer matters in this case --- is the one you are going to get from Sprint.

    I would suggest signing up with the new provider, but wait on porting your number over until your Sprint contract is officially over. Until that time, use a temporary number with your new provider.

    Can't you forward your old service to the new number until the port is complete ?

    hmph, very likely. but I could just see my calling them and them NEVER LETTING ME GET OFF THE PHONE, and THEN proceeding to make things difficult for me. I think I'd rather find a way to simply end the contract without needing to talk to them.

    On the other hand, I also find myself leery about doing anything to suggest to Sprint that I'm continuing the contract. (The 650 I'm using is the first time I've ever had a contract.) So maybe I do need to call them to tell them I'm terminating? Damn, this is worse than breaking up with a woman.

    Anyway, I wonder about

    Until that time, use a temporary number with your new provider.
    which I've never heard of. I think I'm going through a third-party thingie, so maybe I can inquire that way.
