moving to another area code with current cell phone area code?
I'm thinking of getting an iphone 3gs. I have some questions. I'm not really sure how to ask it coz I'm really bad at asking questions that make sense ( see topic title for this topic lol, see what I mean) I'm still new to cellphone plans and what not. This will be my first cellphone that I will be paying for monthly if I do go ahead and get the iphone. I have a cellphone but I'm under my parent's family plan so I don't really pay for anything really.
I'm probably going to get the iphone within the next month. But at the same time I also plan on moving to another city with probably a different area code within the next year.
For example, lets say I live in San Diego and I get the iphone with a san diego area code for my cell number, but I plan on moving to San Francisco next year. My friend said if people in San Fransico tries calling me or vice-versa there will be long distance charges or what not because even though I live in SF, I am still using the SD area code. Like I said, I'm new to this stuff so I don't really know So if anyone can clarify or help me out, its much appreciated.

Like lionheartednyhc said, most cell plans (even pay-as-you-go ones) have unlimited long distance these days, so unless they're calling from a landline (which could also possibly have unlimited long distance) it won't be an extra charge for them. I say keep your number, why not!

I agree. keep your number. mobile to mobile is free. my Son, who is on my plan, has a different area code than myself. it has not been a problem. the problem would arise out of having to inform everyone of his number change...that would be a huge hassle.

I have 4 phone's and an Air Card on my A T & T account. I opened the account in Illinois. 2 phone's, air card have Illinois Area Codes. 1 phone has an area code for Portland, Or. another has area code for Florida. I have never had a issue about this. A T & T does NOT force you to change area codes. It's not like your paying for long distance service. Your paying for your minutes used. IGoSlo
