I'm thinking about trying Vonage for a new small business. If Vonage assigns a number and the service doesn't work for me, can I transfer that number to my local provider? Everything I've found relates to moving numbers to Vonage-- not the other way.. Thanks.

Nope, Vonage numbers stay with Vonage.  That may change with time, but probably not without some kind of regulation mandating it.... and government regulation is the last thing we want encroaching into Voip service. Once that happens, it opens the door to all kinds of nasty issues like taxation, and other impediments to competition and innovation.

Thanks

I've heard opinions both ways. Reebok says he went from POTS to Voip to Voip successfully, but I haven't heard anyone who has yet gone Voip to POTS.

The Voip craze is still so new, I doubt very many have tried to go full circle yet. If anyone DOES successfully LNP from Voip to POTS, I hope they post here and let us know.

Thanks. This seems like a deal killer for a small biz. I don't think I'm willing to disseminate a new Vonage number only to start over if the service doesn't pan out. Anyway, thanks again for the info.

This is regarding a cell phone, but should still apply to a POTS line. That is, if you transferred your POTS number to Vonage to start with:

As far as a Vonage-assigned number. That probably won't transfer out to a POTS because of physical exchange rules.

it won't transfer out because you aren't the "owner of record". when you have a pots line, you own it, in a way. with Vonage, they own it (thus Vonage holdings on caller id). therefore, it's not your number to transfer.
I did see one post on dslreports that someone transferred out a Voip assigned number, but I can't find it anymore. I'll keep searching though.

edit: ok, unfortunately what I remembered was actually porting Voip to Voip. usa2k ported his Vonage assigned number to broadvoxdirect.
in this post the CIO of broadvox mentions that they have done it:

in these posts, usa2k talks about his experience with it:

so if I decide to keep my POTS number with Vonage, can or can't I switch it back out to POTS if I don't like Vonage for some reason in the future?

This is a lawsuit waiting to happen.

Here's the deal. I have like 5 lines with Vonage. I am becoming an ITSP or an internet telephony service provider (a competitor to Vonage) and it looks like Vonage won't support porting my phone numbers over.

It looks like someone in here asked Vonage upfront and they said they could port numbers from themselves and there wouldn't be any problem. (A Vonage Rep trying to make sale). I wonder if that guy could get it on tape.

I sure hope Vonage ports there numbers out or else this is going to be a huge problem.
