You don't believe me, but it is possible, and YOU can do it just like I did - only it's a sort of VIRTUAL portability. The end result is you get to hook up to Vonage from the START, and use your existing phone number.

What you will need:

1) A screwdriver

2) The ability to use CALL FORWARD on your existing (non-Vonage) phone line.

2a) For some reason COX Communications would not let me forward my number to the Vonage Temporary Number, so I had to set up an account at If you can forward your number to your temporary Vonage number, you can skip ahead on these instructions to STEP 3.

2b) Go to

So, if you go to they will offer you a FREE SEVEN DAY TRIAL - go all the way through the registration process until it comes to payment - then CANCEL IT. (Go ahead a register a local number or a toll free number, whatever you can get for FREE.)

When you CANCEL the order, within a few minutes you will receive an email offering you a FREE THIRTY DAY TRIAL. Sign up!

2c) Set up your RingCentral Account to forward calls to your Vonage TEMPORARY PHONE NUMBER.

2d) FORWARD your non-Vonage telephone to the number you just set up.

2e) Proceed to STEP 4

3) FORWARD YOUR EXISTING PHONE to the Vonage Temporary Number. (Usually *72 plus the number. Usually there must be some sort of answer to activate the feature.) (*73 usually removes the feature.)

4) Use the screwdriver to remove your existing phone connection - you're on your own here.

5) Connect your Vonage phone service to your home system.


Now, when your number is eventually ported to your Vonage account your existing phone service will automatically CANCEL, and calls will automatically go to the Vonage service.

You will get an EMAIL from Vonage that this has taken place.

When it does - just call: 1 888 898-4591 to Cancel your account at Ring Central.

I just did everything to STEP 5, using a Ring Central Toll Free number. It workds just fine.

PostPosted: Thu Feb 19, 2009 9:25 am    Post subject: About number forwarding Reply with quote Back to top

About the call forwarding: most phone companies require an answer on the forwarded line before they will forward a number. So, here is the process:

"blinking" dial tone
dial 10 digit phone number
the phone number where you are forwarding rings
for the forwarding to work, someone has to answer it.

If you forward to your virtual number, it won't work (the number rings busy). There is, however, a fix. Time Warner, and I'm guessing most others, will allow you to forward if you repeat the same steps as above a second time within 2 minutes.

I have Time Warner and have successfully forwarded my calls to my virtual number. Same day portability. Of course, I need for the number to actually be ported to cancel my TWC service and save money.

Same day? I don't think that this is possible. It usually is 7-10 business days.
