Changing the cell phone number

4 posts in this topic

I am thinking about dumping the land line and changing my cell phone number to that number.  But I have had that cell number for years and don't want to lose calls.  By any chance does Verizon forward calls to a new number or run a recording indicating what the new number is?  Any other ideas on how to deal with this?


Thanks for your time.

Maybe call Verizon or stop by one of their shops, not a reseller?

If Verizon can't just forward ...


Establish 2 cell phones:

The first has your landline number, along with all of your data and minutes.  This would be the phone you carry with you.

The second has your cell phone number and has a really low cost monthly package on it.  I am certain that you could set this phone up to forward all calls to the other phone.


Reevaluate after 6 months.  You may find no need to keep the cell phone number.

We just dumped our land line. our situation is a little bit different. the only calls we would get on the land line where free cruises to the bahamas, debt consolidation companies, and tech support calls from "microsoft". we decided the landline was no longer worth it and ditched the number all together.


I can see wanting to keep the number if you had a legitimate number of social calls on the landline. Transitioning the few contacts that we had via landline was not that big of deal for us.

    • By only hot bathing them for 10 minutes max it seems to work! I've heard of the above methods but never did them.
    •   I took the blades back off then buffed them clean with a dremel, oiled them, and touched them up with a lazer hand sharpener.  Not sure if a guy can exchange since they aren't flat.   Added some pics so you can see the curve in them. I think they must be a "jet" blade.  
    • Can't wait to see.....  
    • Grape leaves are said to also help.  
    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
