Mobile Number Ownership
Sorry for being a newbie to this but I'd like to know something about mobile number ownership.
Does it mean that as long as I have an active connection, that mobile number will always be mine? For e.g. what if i transfer my number to new telcos like circles.life and if I wanted to transfer to another telco, can they prevent me from my number being transferred? Like who really owns the phone number? Is there a registry that says no matter what (as long as the number doesn't get terminated) I would have exclusive rights to that phone number?
Say they refuse to allow my transfer to another telco, can I take legal action stating that I own this number as it's registered to me?
Thanks in advance.
