Vonage HI, Not sure if this has been asked or explained. In short. If one moves to another


Not sure if this has been asked or explained. In short. If one moves to another state, do you lose your phone number? Vonage (that I have) implies no, but Verizon Wireless (also have) & Sun Rocket (don't have) tell me that if I move I would lose my phone number.

In addition, can I port a phone number that resides in a different state? Is there a difference whether I port before or after I move? I know some numbers can't be ported for whatever reason.

Below is the long version, for those who don't mind reading.


I am having trouble understanding) is Local Number Portability (LNP). I have gone around and around with Vonage, Sun Rocket, and Verizon Wireless (all emails) about keeping a phone number when moving out of state. Verizon Wireless & Sun Rocket stated that if I move (from NJ to MD, which will probably happen in a few years) then I would lose my 732 area code number. I want to keep my Verizon Wireless 732 number (and not change to a 410 number).

Both Verizon Wireless & Sun Rocekt state FCC rules (to the effect), "LNP applies to keeping numbers in the same rate center". Someone please explain this. They made it sound more of an FCC rule, but what I really think it is, that they are not required by law to port your number out of the geographics area for which you are located. We all know that the carriers were against LNP to begin with, so what they are not required to do, they will resist.

A friend of mine told me to just change the "BILLING ADDRESS" to the new location and keep the "SERVICE ADDRESS" where the rate center is. This is good (for a while), but what happens if I want to change providers or even upgrade my phone? Something sometime will happen where you will have to show proof of who you are (which will show current address) and they will see you don' t live there any more, then bye bye number probably instantly (am I overreacting?).

Now Vonage states that you can keep your number. I can even pick an area code 410/MD number while living here in NJ/732. However, I got kind a "funky" email response from Vonage. I told them what Verizon WIreless & Sun Rocket told me (about having to give up my number when moving). This is the response I got (QUOTING THEM).

"In response to your email, after consulting with a few colleagues, we feel that Verizon and Sunrocket may be stating this to you as they do not want to lose a customer. To avoid any issues in the future, it may be best to port your number prior to moving if possible.

Not sure if I understand this response. Then they are telling me "it is best to port prior to moving". You mean they still can't tell me if I can port later or not? I have Vonage, and I told them in the email that I will port my 732 Verizon Wireless number to Vonage (so I will not lose it), at least to keep the number *somewhere* (and long lost friends who had this number can find me, etc.). It goes to reason, if Vonage is allowing me to get a 410 number while living in 732, then why would I lose my 732 number when moving to 410?

Anyway, I may be making this too complicated. Someone please help. Thanks.
