When I switch to Jesusphone, should I keep my old CA number or get a proper Seattle number?

Keep it. Because you can. And because no one remembers numbers any more any way, they just store them in their phones, and does "long distance" actually exist any more?

This is a new phenomenon in the cell phone age. With land lines, people changed phone numbers when they moved and you could tell where someone lived by their area code. Now, people just keep the same number and plan wherever they go. So you can now tell where someone once lived, but not where they live now. I'm unsure about this disconnect. If you are going to need a new plan when you get a new phone, I think I would vote to get a new number that reflects where you now live.

They'll let you transfer a number to an address in a different area code? That's cool if they will. I'd say keep it. There's no need to go through the hassle of giving out number updates just to have your area code match where you live now. Unless you expect a lot of people to call you from land lines where it'll be long distance and cost a lot, I can't think of a reason to worry about it.

Proper Seattle number. It looks better on resumes. :)
