Vonage I signed up for Vonage 12/27 and began receiving emails about the upcoming service.



I signed up for Vonage 12/27 and began receiving emails about the upcoming service. On January 2, my phone stopped working (Qwest is the carrier) - no notice from anyone.

I called Qwest and they said a request had been filed to port the number on January 9, but that it appeared Vonage had ported it early and that all calls were going directly to a Vonage voicemail box.

Vonage was adamant for four days that the phone number had not been ported, but could not explain why all calls were going to their voice box (???). I received the router Saturday, January 7 and it was dead upon arrival (did not work out of the box).

I spend eight solid hours trying to get this worked out yesterday, including being on hold for over 3 HOURS STRAIGHT (I can print the cell phone report and Vonage's ACD would show it as well).

The only solution to this huge mess was to tell me they would send me another router to arrive some time next week (likely Wednesday), and that I would have to pay to send the bad one back (this is beyond believable I know, but I have emails to prove they want it back and are making me pay to send it).

After all this I decided to stop the process. As of 3:30pm yesterday they were still telling me their system showed that the number had not been ported (again without explaining how it rang to a Vonage voice mail for nearly a week prior), so I put in a stop-order to cancel the porting of the number so I could get service back up with Qwest and gets some breathing room from this fiasco. I was issued a stop-order ticket by McKinsey (a woman) at 4pm Saturday - Ticket Number 365-5361.

Today I received the following unbelievable emails just one minute apart:

EMAIL #1 - 1:53PM

Subject: Your Transfer Has Been Scheduled for 1-(303)-470-xxxx

We are pleased to inform you that your request to transfer 1-(303)-470-xxxx from your current carrier to Vonage was accepted on January 8, 2006. The process of moving your number to Vonage is almost complete.

Your expected transfer date is January 9, 2006.

When the transfer is complete we will inform you immediately by email. Thank you for your business.

Subject: Your Transfer of 1-(303)-470-1662 Complete

Dear Charles Blakeman,

1-(303)-470-xxxx is now your permanent Vonage telephone number.

We have successfully ported your existing phone number to your Vonage account. .... ETC, ETC.

EMAIL #3 - 10 Minutes after the first two:
From: Frank M.

Cc: richard.gale@vonage.com
Subject: [vonage.com #3655639]

I am support engineer with Vonage who has read over all your concerns
and problems regarding our service. Etc. - no resolution, simply telling me the number has been ported.

The transfer emails came to me today at 1:53 and 1:54, and the stop order ticket #365-5361 to stop the transfer was issue to me at about 4pm yesterday. This should invalidate the transfer.

How do I get this whole process reversed and get as far away from Vonage as possible as quickly as possible? Please help.
