To help cell phone users prepare, MyRatePlan.com has launched an enhanced site feature to provide consumers with quick answers to the most frequently-asked questions about "number portability." Consumers can access the new "PortabilityInformationCenter" at http://www.myrateplan.com/wnp/
"'Number Portability' is a big win for cell phone users who will no longer be chained to calling plans for fear of losing their numbers," said Allan Keiter, President and founder of MyRatePlan.com. "Along with the resources always available on our site, visitors to MyRatePlan.com's new PortabilityInformationCenter will get access to the latest news, information and tips on number portability."
The Portability Information Center provides accurate, up to date information on how the new regulations will impact individual cell phone users, by answering questions such as: "What is Wireless Number Portability?", "Can I Take My Current Phone to My New Carrier?", and "What Should I Do First: Sign up with my new carrier, or cancel old service?" The InformationCenterprovides detailed answers to about twenty frequently-asked questions in all.
Keiter reports that more than 1,000 consumers have taken the time to answer the site's "Portability Poll", featured on the site for the past two weeks. MyRatePlan.com visits have also increased and lengthened since Keiter introduced a "Portability Countdown Clock" to the site around the same time.
Combined with the site's Single Line and Family Plan Finders -- which help consumers identify the right cell phone plan for an individual's particular set of needs -- the Information Center provides a handy one-stop resource for answers as well as cell phone plan options.
"There's no question that this is the most important development for cell phone users in quite some time," Keiter added, concluding that the site's Portability Information Center will remain active "as long as necessary."
MyRatePlan.com is a developer of unbiased rate plan analysis software and content that makes it easier for consumers to research and select among online service providers in a variety of industries, including wireless, long distance, satellite television, credit cards, travel and Internet access.
The site's Cell Phone Plan Finders offers consumers a quick, three-step process for finding the most cost-effective calling plan based on an individual's zip code and preferences. It can guide consumers to the best plan for their needs, while estimating their monthly bill ... to the penny.
The site's recently introduced interactive
PhoneFinder offers additional value to those seeking a new cell phone.
It is an entirely new way of displaying information for cell phones, using
sliders and toggles to virtually assemble the desired phone based on features,
design and price range.
