I work for Cingular. I'll tell you how we do things...
1. When you move, you can go to your local store/Customer Care and get 'relocated'. They'll get your account updated with the new address and new local number.
2. Family plans only work in the same market.
i.e. If you live in Boston, you can't have a Miami number attached as a family plan. You can have 2 Boston numbers on there, and have the person in Miami use that, but then you look at the incredulous amount of long distance that the Miami people are paying to call him.
Although Cingular DOES offer the 'Allover' network... no roaming or long distance.
(I HAD to plug it...)

I wanted to ask here first becuase salespeople will tell you anything to get a sale, I wanted an honest answer
