Hello,

I am receiving anon death threats from an unavailable or anon number and I can tell you that they have called 30-50 times a day. I can't shut off the phone for obvious reasons.

I called the local Sheriffs dept and they took a report but I have to deal with Vonage to get something done. Vonage says
"we can't help you, is there anything else I can do for you"

WAIT I am getting death threats and Vonage didn't put in place a way to block unknown or anon callers?

So I ask them to release my number because If I switch to SBC they can put a trap on the line and figure this out really quickly. Vonage said we don't release lines. I am getting no help and going insane.

i use this program to control any unwanted calls..you can download it here.

http://phonetray.traysoft.com/downloads.htm#free

....just split off your phone line from the router to also go to your modem in your computer.....the unwanted call will be answered with a recording of your choice...if will even tell them your line has been disconnected....

There are conservatively 198 threads dealing with anonymous call rejection. This same advice you were given in this thread has been given many, many times before. It is available by searching the forums.

My concern is that if you are receiving death threats simply blocking the calls is not a solution to the problem. I don't have any advice for you other than being generally concerned for your safety. My concern is increased because of a recent case here in Richmond where a VCU student, De'Nora Hill, was killed after being stalked and threatened.

If I were to try to give you some advice it would be this. Disconnect your Vonage line and get a prepaid cell phone. Keep it charged and with you at all times. I would be certain to get a phone that supports wireless E911 location if it is available in your area. If you need to keep your Vonage line you might try forwarding it to a cell phone that implements anonymous call rejection.

Sorry to hear about your problem. Maybe if Vonage would use some of their resources in developing a usable ACR that refuses calls that have their numbers blocked your problem might go away. Unfortunately, I've heard from someone claiming to be a Vonage Rep that the ACR that they are currently working on (quite slowly, I might add) sends calls with blocked phone numbers to your voice mail. Wonderful huh. Not only will you have to deal with trying to log into your voice mail (which is down half the time) but I'm guessing that those 50 to 60 phone calls with probably max out the memory allotted to your voice mail and Vonage will probably send you a nice letter saying that they will suspend your account because you are using too much Voice Mail Memory. Then again, I'm sure that they will sell you more memory for a nominal fee. Anyway, I hope that things work out for you and I hope that they can catch the jerk that is doing it. I would not count on Vonage's help though. They are spending all their money on commercials, not R&D.

Maybe the rest of us thought that you had gotten good advice. If you'd like another opinion, I'd say to record a number of these calls and take the recording to the police if you haven't done so already. I would not let this go; I'd insist on some action from the police department. I'd also get back with Vonage customer service and ask to speak with a supervisor. See if there is something more that they can do to track this down.

Run across this on google

http://www.privacycorps.com/products/?id=20

If you want to drop 99 bucks it says its Voip compatible....

And did I understand right that Vonage wouldnt let you transfer your number over to another provider?

Vonage has an issue with some numbers that they hand out. They are unable to transfer them out. This has been discussed previously. It appears however that you can force the issue via the new carrier if your account is up-to-date, also discussed previously.

There is detailed information in the terms of service.
