PostPosted: Sun Jan 08, 2006 9:26 pm    Post subject: Changing telephone number after initiating service Reply with quote Back to top

Does anyone know if it is possible to initiate the service to try it for a month or two, and then have a number ported and change to that number? Another related question is how to deal with virtual numbers that I have with Verizon. The second number is not on a separate line, but simply provides a distinctive ring. We have been using that number for our in-home business. Any ideas on how I could use that number, can those numbers be ported, etc. Thanks for any advice you can provide. John

I waited till i received my router and tried it for a few days just to test drive it...after everything seemed ok I then ported my number over....

But keep in mind...If you dont port over when you sign up you will be charged a 10 dollar fee for it...

Better safe than sorry....it was worth the ten bucks to be sure I wanted it....

Maybe someone else can help you with your second question cause I dont have a clue about that...

I signed up using "the Keep my existing number" option but didn't return the LOA(letter of agency) until I tried it for a few days.

I think you will have to check with verizon first about the virtual number that you have with them .. if it is a real number that can be ported .. so you simply check on the Vonage web site under the availability link to see if it can be ported also or not ... and if it is you will port it to Vonage as a second line as they do not offer the dist. ring feature ..

Do you have a ring feature such as Distinctive Ring or Ringmaster?

Unfortunately, Vonage cannot proceed with your number transfer if this feature is associated with your number. Your carrier typically will not transfer your number if it has one of these exclusive features.

What can I do to remove Distinctive Ring or Ringmaster?

You can contact your phone provider's Customer Service Department to have them remove this feature from your number so that you may then transfer your number to Vonage.

I do not think that you will be able to port your main number until you get the virtual number off of your account. When I transferred my number I was in the same situation. I first converted my virtual number to a full second line with BellSouth and then transferred each of them seperately to Vonage. This was a HUGE pain in the a$$ (due to issues with BellSouth) but it got the job done. I now have two phone line with Vonage and I am saving a lot of money. Very Happy
