I know telemarkets are not allowed to call cell phone numbers. Do Vonage numbers "appear" like cell phone numbers and thus free from annoying telemarketing calls?

Well I don’t think giving my number’s out to strange women count as unsolicited…. But other than that every call on my Vonage phone is valid

That brings up another question. Can telemarketers USE Vonage to make calls? Does Vonage have a business service for this? I've never seen a Vonage "type" number come up on my caller ID but that doesn't mean they don't.

if telemarketers were to use Voip, chances are they would build their own system like some larger businesses do.

I suppose so. I was just wondering if Vonage was used by TM'ers.

I continue to get the same number of telemarketers as I did in the past. Because I signed up on the national do not call list, it's not a lot. I haven't noticed a difference in the year I have had Vonage.

1) Telemarketers can call Vonage numbers following the same rules as for calling any other number.

2) In theory a Vonage->Vonage call could not be bound by the rules of the Do Not Call list. Especially of the originator of the call was using a SoftPhone and contacting a SIP address.

3) Point 2 is moot (ever see the Jesse Jackson Saturday Night Live sketch?) because Vonage does not provide service to telemarketers (per the terms of service) and they do not appear to have a peering agreements in place with other Voip services. (FWD peering agreement was terminated.)

My telemarketing calls are about the same as before I ported my number, very low due to the Do Not Call list. The number of allowed unsolicited calls is higher due to the recent primary.

You can most definitely receive telemarketing calls on a Vonage line. The telemarketing companys can not distinguish between a phone number that has Voip or is using POTS.

If you are receiving telemarketing phone calls, then please go to https://www.donotcall.gov to register your number on the National Do Not Call List.

Also Vonage prohibits use of their service for telemarketing purposes.
