My Story:

I started this adventure on the 1st of May 2005

I signed up for Vonage service and received notice about the LOA that I needed to fill out to transfer my number to Vonage.

May 2, 2005 Letter of authorization (LOA) received
May 2, 2005 Transfer sent to Carrier.

Everything is working well at this point in the adventure.

May 5, 2005 I received the Phone adapter and installed it and it workrd properly.

May 6, 2005 Received the following e-mail:
We have completed your activation request for 911 Dialing, You may dial 911 from your Vonage phone.

Nothing happens except I get my regular phone bill from Bell South
for service from May 5, 2005 to June 5, 2005 for $34.40 which will be deducted from my bank on May 21, 2005.

June 1, 2005 I recieved my 1st Monthly Statment bfrom Vonage with a bill for $35.60 (I had International calls )

Nightmare Begins.

June 2, 2005 Afrer waiting patiently for my 20 business days like the instructions said and no contact from Vonage I sent them a message from their site on the internet explaing that I had a serious problem dealing with my Wife about me not being able to tell her when she would be able to make a call without going out to my Computer room.

I exp;ained that I rreally needed some type of date that I could give her.

June 8, 2005 I received the following:

My reply:

Thanks for trying to do something, My Wife has said she will wait until the
15th of June but if she don't know anything by then I am supposed to Cancell
the service and go back to my old Long distance Service.

I hope to hear something from you.


Bill Salisbury

June 14, I sent the following:


I contacted my local business office for my Telephone service (Bell South)

I was told that there was no type of request for a number transfer in place
for my account.

I was also told that it would take from 24 - 48 hrs for them to transfer the
telephone number to you after you request that it be transferred.

The lady I spoke with (Rebecka Eisenhower) said for me to tell you that you
need to contact their LCSC department with a second request in oeder to get
the number transferred.

I am very disappointed with the entire process so far.

William Salisbury

Another e-mail received the same day.

I sincerely apologize for any delays regarding your number transfer.

Please be advised that we have asked that our carrier expedite the
process of transferring your number.

Please allow up to five business days before we receive an update from

Dear William,

At this time the carrier is working on your request. Unfortunately the
carrier has been experiencing some difficulty in processing the orders
submitted by Vonage. The good news is that it is being expedited and
will be scheduled to transfer shortly. I will contact you as soon as I
obtain this information.
