Telephone regulators issued a series of guidelines Tuesday to help cell phone carriers meet an upcoming deadline to let customers switch to rival companies but keep their old phone numbers.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) said carriers should let defecting customers keep their old number even if their account has an unpaid balance. The FCC also found 'no technical reason' why switching subscribers should have to wait longer than two-and-a-half hours before their old number is 'ported' to their new dialing plan."

'Bout time :)
