We'd thought that the cellphone companies had stopped trying to weasel out implementing number portability after a Federal appeals court threw out their lawsuit against the FCC back in June, but apparently they hadn't quite given up yet. AT&T Wireless and Cingular just tried again in court to stall the new rules by arguing that the FCC hadn't been clear enough about how number portability applies to landlines as well.

I went to the store already to get stuff for eating for the day so we're all set.
There are a number of places here in Denver where we have dead space too. For Sprint, it's at or near The Tattered Cover in LoDo. I also know that Palm's wireless service for their PDA's service is most nonexistent in the entirety of downtown Denver.
New York City has started a campaign to identify all the "dead zones" where cellphone coverage is poor (or non-existent). Best of all, they plan to release the information on November 24th, the day cellphone number portability goes into effect, so New Yorkers thinking of switching carriers can see whether coverage might be better or worse in their part of town.
