Characteristic normal-state charge transport is found in the oxygen-deficient iron-arsenides ${it Ln}$FeAsO$$_{1-y}$$ (${it Ln}$: La and Nd) with the highest ${it T}$ $$_{c}$$'s among known Fe-based superconductors. The effect of "doping" in this system is mainly on the carrier scattering, quite distinct from that in high-${it T}$ $$_{c}$$ cuprates. In the superconducting regime of the La system with maximum ${it T}$ $$_{c}$$ = 28 K, the low-temperature resistivity is dominated by a ${it T}$ $$^{2}$$ term. On the other hand, in the Nd system with ${it T}$ $$_{c}$$ higher than 40 K, the carriers are subject to stronger scattering showing ${it T}$ -linear resistivity and small magnetoresistance. Such strong scattering appears crucial for high-${it T}$ $$_{c}$$ superconductivity in the iron-based system.
