In adding a virtual private number to my account, I went to the webpage to add a VPN, selected the state=Texas, area code=817, then under the list of cites was about 8 or so, but 3 of the cities had the abbreviation EMS beside them. Anyone know what that means? Vonage wasn't able to provide an answer. I can think of several possibilities: Emergency Medical Services, Extended Metropolitan Service, Extended Mobile Service, etc...

Same sort of issue: I want to maybe add a virtual number in western Maryland. When I go to areacode 301, I get several 'Washington area 4' (whatever) and the like, and nothing with a town in western MD (okay...). I googled with no luck. Anyone know what these metro 'areas' mean? I assume they are all near metro DC, but it would be nice to know *what* area you were picking when there are several to choose from!

MmmDee,

You guessed it;
Quote:
EMS Extended Metropolitan Service

http://www.niicommunications.com/agent/info/acronym/acronyms.html


I would guess hazard a guess that they might be identified on the FoneFinder site as prefixes listed by city "FORT WORTH _____". But that is purely a WAG.

I would recommend visiting the phone finder site and see what is listed for the prefix you will be called from.

leesweet,

I had the same issue when I signed up for service. I found a site that correlated the Washington Zone numbers with cities in Virginia, and I changed the URL to Maryland and had success.

See if this helps you (Scroll down to Washington Zone x section):

scerruti:

Thanks for the abbreviations link, that makes me feel a bit better regarding the meaning of EMS. I'm a bit surprised that CS didn't know the answer. If CS ever gets back to me with a different answer or signing up with an EMS city gives a peculiar result, I'll post more.

Fonefinder didn't really help that much, I pretty much already knew the outlying/connecting areas using the same area code and nothing on the 817 page mentioned EMS so I'm preceding under the idea that EMS (in the Vonage context) = "Extended Metro Service".

Thanks again,

Thanks for the tip! At first glance it at least tells you what state your 'Washington' number is in and the part of the state Good find!

Now, why can V have a link to such a site? The usual legal reasons, I suppose...
