Why is there a charge to change your phone number?
I'm moving out of state next week and wanted to change both of my numbers to that state's area code. I see there's a $36 charge which in my case will be $72. Why is there a charge in the first place? My previous carrier didn't charge for number change. And several other carries don't charge either and if they do it's $15 which is a more reasonable rate. So can someone explain why there is a charge and why so much? I really dont want to be stuck with an out of state number.
