I just had them move my entire Scottrade account over to OptionsFirst (it's a wholly owned subsidiary of Scottrade). They didn't charge a transfer fee, and the entire process took about 4 days.
You could transfer all, or just part of your Scottrade account, if you like the Scottrade platform for stock trades better than the OptionsFirst platform. However, I haven't seen any particular advantage to the Scottrade account (at least for the types of trades I prefer to do).
Certainly, the OptionsFirst platform is much more powerful for options trading than the native Scottrade account:-)
