Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - March 23, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

March 23, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

In the news, we'll see what kind of effect Vonage's growth is having on investors who hold stock in older phone companies. We'll also tell those Vonage users who live in two large New Jersey counties how they can get their name in the paper. We'll also cover two very interesting Vonage Voip Forum threads about different types of connection issues. And finally, we'll go to a thread that announces a contest where I will credit the winner with a free month of Vonage phone service!

In The News

Forbes writer Says Vonage "Revolution" Is Having Effect On Older Phone Companies

"Over the last 12 months $40 billion of market cap has tiptoed out of AT&T, BellSouth, Verizon, SBC, and Nextel during a period when the market has been flat," writes Forbes Magazine columnist Rich Kaarlgard. Smart capital sees the Skype and Vonage revolution coming and is exiting."

Newspaper Looking For Vonage Users To Interview

Are you one of the 1.2 million people who live in Monmouth or Ocean County, New Jersey? If you are, and happen to be a Vonage user, The Asbury Park Press is looking for you.

A note in that newspaper today says that a reporter wants to talk to Monmouth and Ocean county residents who get telephone service from cable companies or other providers such as Vonage, for an upcoming story on telephone competition. Please contact business writer David P. Willis at or (732) 643-4039.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

After no problems with his Vonage service for the two months he has been a Vonage customer, Vonage Forum Member OldSnipe has recently had some connection problems. He describes these in a thread he has started called Could Not Connect.

"Starting 3 days ago I started getting random calls, about 2 a day. The Caller ID says, 'Could not connect,'" he writes. The phone continues to ring until it is picked up but is dead when picked up. 

OldSnipe adds that It appears that the caller, however is dumped into Voicemail immediately without even hearing a ring. 

"Since it only happens once or twice a day I am having problems trying to track the problem, however I suspect one of my 4 phones is the source," he says. "I am now disconnecting one phone at a time for a day trying to troubleshoot the problem, but that goes slow.

OldSnipe adds that he is using the "House Wiring." "The outside copper are clearly disconnected. I have been using the house phones since I ported my number over 2 months ago," he points out.

Vonage Forum Member Steve48 believes he may have figured out the problem here.

"One of your 4 phones is the source of what? What do you think it's doing?," he asks OldSnipe.

"If it is a problem with the phone, you can speed up the troubleshooting by disconnecting 2 phones at once. If the problem persists, disconnect 1 of the 2 remaining and you should have the problem isolated," adds Steve48. "If the problem goes away, disconnect both of the ones that you had originally left connected and plug in just one of the ones that you had disconnected. Again, that should isolate it."

Vonage Forum Member Tarik has been experiencing dropped Vonage calls now and then. He is looking for answers thru a thread he has started called Calls dropped because of ...?

"I have a one line service from Vonage that I use for both phone calls and Fax at the same line. (I don't have too much faxes for me to get a dedicated fax line)," Tarik explains. "So, everything works great, receiving/making calls, sending/ receiving faxes except when my wife calls me from her cell phone, after 5 or 6 minutes the call gets dropped followed by the fax tone. 

"The thing is there is no fax coming, there never was," Tarik adds. "This happens every time she calls from her cellphone." 

Tarik points out that he has other friends who call him from their cell phones with no problems.

Once again, Steve48  offers his helpful insights.

"The first thing I'd do is disconnect my own fax machine and make sure that the tones are not coming from it," he recommends. "It could be that something odd about your wife's cell phone is triggering your fax machine and causing something odd to happen."

Win A Month of Vonage Service By Guessing When We'll Hit 25,000 Members

Hey, we have a fun contest going. I have details about this contest in a thread I have just started called Contest: Guess Exactly When We'll Hit 25,000 Members!

Here's what I say in the thread:

Earlier this month, the Vonage Forum turned three years old. We started it in March, 2003.

At the time I made this post, I looked on the right frame of the Vonage Forum pages, and noticed we were closing on 25,000 Members.

Tell you what. Let's do a contest. Would you like to make a guess when we will hit that magic 25,000 mark? Just take a look on the right frame under Members, to see how many Members we have at the moment. Then, to make your guess, you might want to consider that we seem to be getting about 50 new Members a day on average.

Ready to guess? First, keep in mind that the times we use here on the Forum are GMT-5 hours. That means we are on Eastern Time, 1 ahead of Central, 2 ahead of Mountain, and 3 Pacific.

Also, this site has 59 test accounts that are not included in the total tally on the right, so the 25,000th member will really be member-25059

Then, just reply to this thread and make your guess as to the day, and time ("Vonage Forum time") we will hit 25,000 Members. We'll announce you as the winner- and you can brag all you want! And that will not be all! I will personally credit the winner with a free month of Vonage service.

But you must post your guess fast, as this thread will lock to new postings in 48 hours.

To make your guess, just go to the Contest: Guess Exactly When We'll Hit 25,000 Members! thread, open a post and give it your best shot!

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 Friday morning with our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest, including our popular In The Blogs feature !!
