Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - November 21, 2005

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

November 21, 2005

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest. First, I have some exciting news. Yesterday, we reached the 19,000 mark of Members who have come on board since we started the Vonage Forum here in March, 2003. So let us all welcome, our 19,000th Member, phibbitts. Can't wait to read your "tidbits," "phibbitts!"

In the news, we'll look at a big move Vonage is making, why one Massachusetts resident is far more happier with Vonage's service than that of his previous landline provider, and who Vonage UK customers think is the most important inventor ever to come from the U.K. We'll read Vonage Forum threads on configuring your dialplan settings, checking the wiring on a new home that has never seen "traditional" phone service, as well as a thread about what you might talk about to your relatives over the Thanksgiving table. Or, maybe after the turkey has settled and the football games are on. And this being Monday, we'll also introduce you to our Vonage Forum Member of the Week.

Vonage In The Headlines

Vonage Begins Move To New Headquarters

The Asbury Park (N.J.) Press reports today that Vonage has started the big move of its corporate headquarters from Edison, New Jersey to its new headquarters in the town of Holmdel.

Vonage chief financial officer John Rego says that executives chose Holmdel after looking at the highway system and roads in the areas where most of Vonage's employees live, and what a move to one town vs. another would entail for their commutes.

Just off Route 520 in Holmdel, Vonage is leasing a newly renovated 350,000 square foot building. Vonage gutted the structure, constructing new open office spaces and putting in amenities such as a gymnasium and a cafeteria that can sit about 600. It also has a Starbucks coffee and juice bar.

The 88-acre property also has open space, basketball courts, softball fields, a lined football field and walking trails.

When Vonage completes the move by the middle of next month, 1,400 Vonage employees will work there.

The Press' David Willis writes that at Vonage's old 95,000-square-foot headquarters in Edison, employees were working in cramped quarters, with some workers sitting at folding tables.

"We are pretty much on top of each other in cubicles that weren't meant to be shared," Vonage finance manager Joann Vought, tells the newspaper.

Columnist Likes Vonage Service

Charles Mathewson is a columnist for MPG Newspapers, a chain of publications based just south of Boston. He writes that he's recently switched his phone service from the major phone company that serves the northeastern U.S. - a company whose name begins with the same letter of the alphabet Vonage does - to Vonage- and he's happy about the switch.

"I subscribed to Vonage as soon as I could," he writes. "We happily bid the (former phone service provider's) landline good riddance. We pay Vonage $25 a month for unlimited service.

"Service, a word" that Mathewson says his now-former phone company "uses cruelly because its corporate culture cannot comprehend the word's meaning."

Alexander Graham Bell Tops Vonage UK Poll as Greatest UK Inventor

In September, Vonage UK polled nearly 2,000 residents there about who they considered to be the greatest inventor ever from the U.K. Scottish inventor Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone was chosen by 32 percent of respondents and topped the list. That's not surprising, given the fact that Vonage subscribers are very interested in phone stuff. Kind of ironic though, considering so many regional U.S. phone companies that Vonage competes against have, or still have "Bell" as part of their name. But due to re-namings and mergers, only one of those competitors will still have "Bell" in their name starting a few months from now.

Speaking of Vonage UK, did you know we have a Vonage UK Forum? You can find it at The threads there are integrated with our other Vonage Forum threads. But since I just made a link, let's go to the Vonage UK forum, as well as see what else is up on the Vonage Voip Forum.


On The Vonage Voip Forum

On the Vonage UK section of the Vonage Voip Forum, Member DBY416 had some specific questions about his dialplan settings. So he thought the best thing to do would be to pose the question in a thread that he's named LINKSYS PAP2 "dialplan" settings.

I should tell you here that this thread contains a lot of numbers and letters. Might not be the best eye candy, but if you are in DBY416's position, this is stuff well worth knowing.

"Does anyone know how to set up the 'dialplan' so that you can call numbers within your own area code as just the 6 digits on the pap2? but then still dial everything else as normal," he writes Vonage uses this system of local dialing within your own area code.

Fellow Forum Member CryHavok writes, "You're not looking for | are you? That's usually the shifted key (next to Z)."

Based on that information, it looks like DBY416 was able to figure out his issue. 

"Sorted it and now it works ok," he posts. "If anyone else needs the info it's as follows" (with ??? representing your area code). 

<:01???>[2-9]xxxxxS0|0[1-8]xxxxxxxxxS0|001[2-9]xx[2-9]xxxxxxS0|00[2-9] xxxxx.) ??? = your area code, so it could be 01632,01911 or 020,023 etc etc

New Vonage  Forum Member sanjay92 has just moved to a new house, one which is so new it had never been wired for "traditional" phone service. But since he wants to use Vonage in his new home he's posted a thread about it that he calls New Home wiring, never connected to any phone provider.

" I have Phone Jack in all rooms, I have connected output of VOIP adapter to one of jack but I don't get dial tone in other jack," he writes. "Is there anything I need to connect in this box? 

He then posts photos of his outside box, and then adds that in one room of his house, he has an inside box set up for cable and phone service inside one room of his house my one of room which has set to wires for Cable & Phone. 

Then, Forum Member mkstringer makes a post with some preliminary advice. 

"Sanjay, from the pictures, I see the brown-ish wire coming up from the bottom to the posts (middle of the pictures) with the yellow tag - that's the feed from your local provider (the builder may have already contracted them to run the wire during the build)," he writes. "I'm betting the blue wires on the left are the ones for the house."

"If those blue wires are hooked up to ANYTHING in that grey box (the NIU), unhook them," mkstringer adds. 

He then asks sanjay if there is a central place in his basement or attic that all the wires run. "That should enable connections to all the jacks," writes mkstringer, adding that he wonders if the builder even hooked all those together. 

"Also, pull the jacks out - make sure they are the same," mkstringer adds. "I think removing any connections to the blue wires outside and finding the central junction are the keys here."

I know that so many of you are getting ready to fly or drive to visit family members this Thanksgiving. Others of you will host relatives. With that in mind, I had this idea for a Vonage Forum thread that I've named, Will You Suggest Vonage To Your Relatives Over Thanksgiving?

As I write in the thread:

"With the Thanksgiving holiday coming up, I know a number of you will be flying and driving to spend a few days with family members. Others are getting ready to host family members who will be visiting.

"I'm guessing that while you are with your relatives, some of you will feel the urge to talk up Vonage to your relations. Especially those who will tell you they wish you called more often.

"And that might be the time that some of you might say something like "hey Dad you are right- but did you know there's this thing called VoIP that lets you make unlimited calls throughout North America for one low monthly rate?"

"And then what if Mom, Dad, Aunt Susie or Uncle Bill is interested? Will you go to their den and show them your Vonage - and if they are interested will you want to take them to a Vonage retailer if they accompany you as you start your Christmas shopping the day after Thanksgiving or order it online?

I just checked and there already are several answers posted! This looks like a lively discussion, so why not make a post with your ideas, too! In Wednesday's Digest- which will be our last for this week - I'll take another look at the thread and highlight some of your posts!

But it's not Wednesday yet. It's Monday, the day that we name our Vonage VoIP Forum Member of the Week. Another nod to Trowski, who as I have written before, and has shown in his nearly 1,100 posts to date, is both extremely knowledgeable about Vonage, but is funny to boot! To read some of Trowski's recent posts, click here.

As we close out today's Digest, I'd like to remind you once again about some more options you have to receive the Vonage Voip Forum Digest every day. If you go to this page:, you will see a list of RSS Newsreaders from which with one or two clicks, you'll be able to get your Digest delivered directly to your Newsreader each morning. The Newsreaders we've linked to on that page include such reliable and trusted services as Bloglines, Feedster, My Yahoo!, Newsgator and Feedburner. I am open to add others, just contact me with the info of the Newsreader.

That's what's hot about Vonage today. We'll be back on Tuesday morning with our next edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest, including our pick for Vonage Forum Member of the Week!!
