Cell Phone Blues

The battery on my cell phone keeps dying! Heck, the darn thing was completely dead most of yesterday and I didn’t even know it. It’s less than one year old. I could replace it, no big deal. But I’ve got my eye on a Pocket PC PDA/phone combination and would like to switch carriers.

Here’s the problem: I would have to change my phone number that everyone knows me by. Why is that? Simply put, it’s because the cell-phone carriers do not want to offer this sort of mobility. And the reason for that is the mediocre service that most of them offer.
