OK Vonage best.
Now you got me going after I reread the whole thread Twisted Evil

dconnor, Site admin said:

My experience with this is actually extensive. I once had a rather large ($25M+) carrier agreement with Qwest, they can be very hard to deal with if they wish to be.

See, Qwest really does not want to provide LNP to a CLEC.

Prior to being given the ok to sell LD by the PUC's, Qwest (all RBOC's) had to open their network to local resale. But nothing said they had to make it easy on the CLEC's to do business with them.
They could require massive bonds, 10,000 page applications, delay the paperwork for years...

The reason you hear reports in this forum coming from the greater Denver metro area of speedy LNP's is due to Denver being the capital of Colorado and home to Qwest corporate. All eyes are on Qwest in Denver.

In other Qwest regions, Qwest can make it very difficult for a CLEC to obtain an agreement.

You can not blame Vonage for this problem. I hope the power of Vonage along with complaints to your PUC from people like you will put an end to this practice by the RBOC's.

That definitely sounds like bashing!!! Evil or Very Mad
At least he has the abbreviations correct, however.
Let's see it's really Qwest's fault in this instance.
What is the area code-prefix of the number in question that started this thread? I'll check it with the other Voip providers. Wanna bet it's available with some of them? Didn't think so. . . Lol

Back to the original topic:

tried several AZ prefixes (in Area Code 520) on the Vonage website checker, to see if they are portable. I tried both landline and cell phone prefixes. All came back as non transferrable.

According to Qwest (the major local phone provider in AZ), all the switches in AZ were converted to Local Number Portability (LNP) back in 2000. See the following which was cut and pasted from Qwest.

From another Voip provider:

AZ LNP availability:


Area codes:

I'm sure Qwest will enjoy Vonage's comments about them on this thread Razz

The whole CLEC/ ILEC/LNP thing is difficult.

Everyone is jockeying for position and there are a lot of players who basically don't want to play; or i would say, "play fairly".

I don't work as closely to the whole LNP situation but I do know that it is not an exact science and is a bit messy. Sometimes it's hard to know whose to blame. Everyone points at someone else.

All I can do it try to do my best and pickup the pieces, if any are left on the ground.

If i can assist in anyway please feel free to ask. I have tried to be helpful to the posters in the past as I know some issues get pushed to the side as the needs of the business are changing.

Has anyone successully ported a number from an area where Sprint is the ILEC? There's a good portion of FL served (I use the term loosely) by Sprint as the ILEC and I've noticed that Vonage doesn't have service in those areas. I've been waiting for Vonage to open up lines in some of those areas, but still nothing yet.
