Reno Area Wireless Information
Wireless Telephone Number Prefixes Issued by Carrier & Number Portability Information

Effective November 24, 2003, phone users in the top 100 MSAs (Metropolitan Statistical Areas) were able to switch to a different wireless carrier, or from a home to wireless telephone number without having to get a different phone number. Since Reno is not a Top 100 MSA, Number Portability didn't fully become effective until May 24, 2004. For detailed information see information from the FCC about Number Portability, or contact your wireless carrier.

Carriers activating new wireless service most likely will still issue phone numbers within the same prefix blocks as before. However, due to Number Portability if you see a number on your Caller ID from a prefix below, they wouldn't necessarily subscribe to the wireless service provider who issued the number.

Remember that before switching wireless carrier's you may still be under a contract with your existing carrier. If you switch carriers and port/transfer your number before your contract is over, you will be liable for potentially large early termination fees. Keep this in mind when shopping for a new wireless carrier.
