Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - November 22, 2005

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

November 22, 2005

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest. 

In the news, we'll look at what one reviewer for a major U.S. newspaper has to say about Voip service such as Vonage as a Holiday gift. In that vein, we'll update you on the response to my Vonage Forum post I started yesterday about whether you might be planning to suggest to your relatives you see over Thanksgiving that they might want to sign up with Vonage. We'll also read a thread from a Vonage Forum Member who does want to sign up with Vonage, but first has a few questions about the transfer process from his current phone provider.

Vonage In The Headlines

Vonage Suggested As Holiday Gift

In the Washington Times newspaper, writer Mark Kellner suggests to readers that they consider giving Voip service such as Vonage as a gift this holiday season. "Leading Voip telephone service providers will be happy to activate a VoIP-compatible router or phone purchased at Best Buy or a similar store and give to someone else -- or even yourself, for that matter," he writes.

"The genius of Voip is simple: It utilizes your broadband connection to place and receive voice telephone calls using a regular phone connected to a special router," Kellner explains. "Recipients can be on a cell phone, another Voip phone or a regular phone line, here or around the world." 

Kellner then adds that he has "an excellent Voip plan that lets me call the United States, Canada and Western Europe as much as I want for a reasonable monthly charge under $25; my calls to Australia are super low-priced, too."

Speaking of Vonage and the Holiday season, I started a thread about it yesterday on the Vonage Voip Forum. So let's go there now.


On The Vonage Voip Forum

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 well over 20 answers posted! One of the latest ones is posted by Air Junky

"Oh yea, I've been telling about Vonage for a while now. I've been with Vonage over 2 yrs now & had less than a handful of issues," he writes. "Installing the Voip router in my network, dealing with power outages, setting up 911, and surfing while we're talking........ every obstacle has been a breeze to overcome. I look forward to bragging about it over another holiday dinner."

And then DannyBoy84 writes that if you want to convert your relatives to Vonage users,  "Take your adaptor with you, and let them make some of their holiday calls on it. We all call long distance a lot more on the holidays. This was they can see the call quality for themselves. 

"Then tell them all those calls were free," he adds, noting that if you have an unlimited plan, those calls are free in a sense.  

VonageForum Member mjyeager is "eager" to switch to Vonage from his current phone provider, RCN. But he has some questions about the process, so he's started a Vonage Forum thread that he's titled Canceling Phone Service from RCN Bundled Package-Advice-.

Mjyeager writes he is about to switch to Vonage from RCN, where he currently has the CPI bundled service, with three lines (home #, home office phone/fax). I" would like to port my home number but not concerned about keeping home office phone/fax number. Just wondering if anyone has had any issues with this with RCN, and any advice in doing so," he posts. "For example, I was thinking about dropping the home office phone/fax lines as soon as I get Vonage up and running and keeping the home number with RCN active (maintaining the CPI bundled package) until the number is ported." 

Mjyeager adds that he's  wondering what RCN's response will be when they turn off the home number, leaving the cable/internet service in place. "Do they (RCN) default to the package pricing for the Cable/Internet bundle or will they bill as individual services?," he asks. "I'm just trying to think this through before pulling the trigger and looking for landmines to avoid."

Fellow Vonage Forum Member mobster75 writes that he underwent the same procedure mjyeager is asking about, and had no problems.

"About 2 weeks after I filled out the eLNP request form on Vonage's site, I was able to call RCN and they told me that they had received the port request for my home number and it was scheduled for a specific date," he writes, adding that he "went from a $192/month bill to a $130/month bill just by moving the phone service to Vonage.

"Maybe 2 months after I was working happily w/ Vonage," mobster75 adds, "the RCN folks came out to the house to remove the beige phone adapter from the side of my house (as you don't need it for just internet & tv) while I was at work, but everything has been great."

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 Wednesday morning with our next edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest !!
