Vonage Here is an interesting problem I ran into in Alabama. I am specifically referring

Here is an interesting problem I ran into in Alabama. I am specifically referring to two cities in Alabama. Calls in city #1 are handled by a small "fly by night" phone company. Calls in city #2 are handled by one of the major phone companies (I'll be nice and keep their name out of it, but they just keep growing). :roll: Anyway, POTS calls from city #1 to city #2 are free. Have been since I was born and grew up there. So, Vonage gets an exchange in city #2. I added a virtual number so my family could call me free. They only dial 7 digits to reach anything in their "toll free" area. Next thing you know all of my family is getting charged long distance by the big company on their phone bill from "fly by night" and they didn't even dial 1 or area code, just the 7 digits. Now the problem gets good. I do some research and find out that Vonage leases their connection from Level 3 Communications which they do in a lot of areas. Level 3 has an agreement with the big phone company for the connection. So my family in city #2 does call for free. But Level 3 and city #1 don't have an agreement and now they are charging my family long distance without them even knowing it was coming. In fact their local office originally said it would be no charge. The local office didn't know about Voip.

I call the "fly by night" phone company. No luck other than they would drop the charges that month after negotiation. The charges came from the big phone company and they put them on the bill as a courtesy. Courtesy? My family specifically requested NO long distance carrier three years ago. How can their be any charge for a call they complete with 7 digits.

I call the public service commission in Alabama. They said they didn't understand Voip and didn't know what to do. They said it wasn't fair that my family could call me in Ohio for free. :x But if I wanted to file a formal complaint (paperwork) I could. They certainly let me know their feelings so I knew I would waste my time.

I call the FCC. They said they couldn't help. They were overwhelmed by calls on Voip and it was too much trouble. Seriously, that was the response. They did say I could file a formal complaint and they might get to it. Again, red tape to a dead end.

So, I call Vonage. They took my information and did nothing else. I called them a second time. No return call yet and that has been about eight months ago. I guess they knew it would not get anywhere and they have their hands full with Verizon crying (who isn't the big phone company I am referring to).

Now I do wave the Vonage flag and don't intend to get any other service. But I am ashamed that they dropped my requests and never returned my calls. Unfortunately the problem is more with the local boys not cooperating and the government turning their head. So any Voip would have the same problem.

Now you understand why I think the whole government thing is held by the POTS phone companies. (insert paranoia) They do as they please and we are supposed to know who they have agreements with before we dial anything.

In your case you are extremely lucky that the doctor didn't dial the local number and then get charged long distance. Then you would have a mess to straighten out. Been there. Done that.

In my case I have a Vonage toll free number so my folks can call and I call them back. Yes, the Alabama Public Service Commission thinks that isn't fair and the FCC is lost in a political muck. But, it works for me. I never reach my base minutes on my toll free number and I only pay $5.00 a month. But you can't give the number out to everyone or you will be paying through the nose. Only my close family has the number.

I can't wait until Voip takes the lead and the POTS phone companies finally have to bow, unless they keep government in their pocket. Then they will find a way to extract my money again.
