nope very bad idea because all your calls will be going to the cops not just the anon / unknown caller. and the cops will be looking for you and not your caller

Actually, Simulring will show THEIR caller ID, not yours, in the caller ID data. Of course, your local police may (or may not) be able to detect the forward. But I bet having the police answer the phone directly once will at least make the threatener think that the cops are monitoring the line.

I expect setting up such a forward would be in violation of most local laws, though...

I'm sorry, but if you're getting death threats on your home line, I'm thinking your phone service is the least of your problems. Go talk to the assistant district attorney if the police won't do anything about it.

Its not that Vonage can't help you, its just that they can't release anonymous phone traces without a subpoena, if the death threats and harassing calls were bad enough you would call the police and not your phone company.

I've noted in a few previous posts that I'm a big fan of the Privacy Manager from Privacy Corps. It is $100 very well spent. It works easily and as advertised and their tech support is the best I've ever experienced. I have no stake in, or relationship to, the product or company in any way - I'm just a Vonage customer who couldn't stand the anonymous calls. I've been with Vonage for 5 months now, and the savings over my previous MCI Neighborhood bill have paid for the Privacy Manager and still put money in my pocket. I'm not sure I would have made it 5 months without some form of ACR, and now that I have the Privacy Manager, I don't need to feel frustrated that Vonage doesn't offer this basic service.

This is true of every phone co I've ever worked with, landline or other. They're not going to hand out phone records without legal documentation.

There are several ways that this situation could be handled to a satisfactory completion. You could invest the $99 in the Privacy Guard, or you could invest a little in the PCI card that works with Asterisk (a free PBX system that installs on a computer). One advantage of Asterisk is that you can set it to let any calls through that have caller id information that exists on a list you create (family, friends, etc...) and give the anon callers the "We're sorry, the number you have dialed XXX-XXX-XXXX is no longer in service. If you believe you have received this number in error, please check the number and dial again." followed by the fast beep/busy signal.

Or, you go talk to the police, but buy "police" I don't mean "officer friendly"...you go talk directly to a DETECTIVE. Call the PD and make an appointment to talk with a detective and keep that appointment. He will be more willing to look into the issue.

I work in computer forensics, and I know that Vonage could get you the access point of the problem call. The questions is "why will they not do this"...it is because they would need a warrant. Maybe if you can get the detective involved, Vonage will turn that information over to him/her and then they can do a normal trace from the point of access into Vonage's system.

If they truly call as much as you state, then it will be an easy matter for them to trace the call and find out who the perp is.

Sorry, but death threats sound kind of serious to me. What I'd so is get a softphone number, then after that tell Vonage you want to make THAT one your primary number, and get rid of the old number completely. Porting a number is fun and great to have for years and years, but it sounds like you need to just do a plain old disappearing act.


This makes the most sense to me.
