Everyone calls everyone from cell phones and there’s no such thing as long distance within the country. I haven’t had a land line in 12 years – only cell phones – and have lived in 3 different states with the same number. Nobody I know has a local number, actually.

For a cell phone? I wouldn’t. I know people who have relocated here to Florida from New York or New Jersey and still keep their Florida numbers. My husband moved from New Jersey to Florida when he was in 9th grade and his father switched their cell company after they moved and they all got Boca area codes. After the family moved back to New Jersey my husband went abroad and then lived in New York for years before we moved. His entire family still has Boca area codes. Now he lives in Florida again but we don’t live in Boca. I’m sure for the family that still lives in New York and New Jersey the 516 and 561 area code gets a little confusing for people.

No – I wouldn’t.

I’ve lived with my Indiana cell phone number in Indiana, Georgia, California, Texas, and North Carolina without any problem.

No way. I’ve had the same cell phone number for the last 13 years and I haven’t lived in that area code/region for the last 11 of those years. Everyone has (or should have) cell phones and/or free-long distance these days, so calling outside the area code shouldn’t be a problem. Plus its also a great conversation starter when people try to figure out where your area code is from 🙂

I didn’t until DH and I wanted to combine plans and we were from two totally different area codes. So we had to change to get on the same plan, but if you don’t have to do that I say keep it!

Nope– this is so common these days that most people are used to any variation of phone numbers– I have friends who have lived in my town for over a decade and they still have their new jersy phone numbers!
