"It will also allow for easier localization of alerts so that emergency notifications can be sent to only specific areas of the country."
Is this going to be done by area code? I have moved city twice since receiving my current number just because i've used it for so many services and contacts.

I am certain that it would not be by area code, since so many people keep their numbers, move, etc. It could be by SID or some type of grouping of MSAs or RSAs.
