Vonage The only way your old telco cut the service at Vonage's request is if your friend's



The only way your old telco cut the service at Vonage's request is if your friend's telco completed the LNP faster than Vonage could ship the gear.

Vonage cannot actually cut phone service, but if the LNP request completes, the telco would cut service. This is a standard part of the LNP process, but it usually takes at least a couple of weeks.

How long a gap are we talking about? When did your friend order service from Vonage and start the LNP process? How long between that and the time the telco cut the service? You said your friend "just signed up" - if the telco managed to transfer the number before Vonage could even ship the equipment, I can see how that would happen, but telcos usually take a long time to complete the LNP process and transfer a number, and they don't cut service until that is complete.

I do find it odd that Vonage told your friend that no temporary number was available. The number could have been anywhere in the US, since it was a temporary number that was going to die as soon as the LNP transfer completed. Not that it really matters, I guess, if the telco completed the LNP in a couple of days the temporary number would die long before it was even activated. But they usually do issue one all the same.

Remember, your friend is dealing with two companies. Vonage has no control over exactly when the LNP happens and since it usually takes weeks, they request it immediately. Your friend's telco should only drop the line when the LNP is complete, and if they dropped it early, or did the LNP more quickly than any other telco has managed it in the history of beauracratic telcos, then there's not a lot Vonage can do.

Obviously, waiting until the equipment arrives and is tested is a prudent step, and your point is well made there. But LNP usually takes so incredibly long that most users have both lines for weeks. I have yet to hear of one happening so fast - though I have heard stories of local telcos cutting the line prematurely out of spite....

If your friend successfully backs out of this deal and decides to give it another go, I'd suggest buying the equipment retail - that way your friend can plug it in and test the line long before the LNP could possibly happen.

In fact, people can and have signed up for accounts then done the LNP later, after they've verified it works for them. It does cost a bit more that way - there's usually a $10-20 fee to change numbers like that as far as I know, but means that you have the ability to test it out before you commit your number to it.
