    I have Sprint, and utilize the "Unlimited to any mobile" feature a lot. The thing that scares me are the people who port their home phone numbers to a mobile line...

    If you look up the number using a number lookup service, it still states that it is a "landline" phone number....would Sprint pick up that this is a cell phone, or would they still count it as a landline?

    Try this website:

    Phone companies know where they are routing a number.
