Default Are there any cell phones that will allow you to change its phone number whenever you want?

Anyone know if there are any cell phones and / or plans that will allow you to change the phone number at will whenever you want (say like 2 or 3 times a week) without incurring a $ervice charge? AT&T charges $19 to change a landline number. Maybe that kinda new Walmart phone that supposedly just came out not too long ago? I currently don't have a cell phone, haven't had one in a while.

Most cell phone companies will charge you. They will suaully do it for free if you are receiving harassing calls. If you are trying to change it frequently you might want to check out prepaids. They might be more flexible.

Get an unlocked phone and a bunch of prepaid T-Mobile SIM cards off some dude in a parking lot that you find through Craigslist.

No. The provider has to change your number. You can change devices of you are GSM without a charge. You can go on EBAY and buy SIM cards that already have a number for you too. But you cannot "change" it.

You can do the same with post paid if you use the words "harassing calls".
