Bronx residents will soon be able to take advantage of new cellular phone option
The ability to switch home phone numbers to cellular phones will soon be available to Bronx consumers.
The new cell phone option was announced the same day the Federal Communications Committee ruled that cell phone users would be able to keep their phone numbers even if they switched carriers.
Now under the new federal rules, cell phone users nationwide can switch their home phone numbers to their cell phones and basically just use one phone. The only catch is that the landline phone number can only be transferred if the wireless company serves the same area as the landline company.
The new cell phone option is expected to be available in the Bronx by November 24.
