PostPosted: Sat Oct 22, 2005 2:05 pm    Post subject: Newbie question ...... Reply with quote Back to top

Greetings

I'm about to start up new service with a new Vonage phone number to test out the service before changing my POTS line.

My question is about area code selection. I live in CA (310) and was thinking of getting a IL (847) area code since I have family there.

My question involves charges. Will my family calling my 847 number be charged for a local call since they are dialing the same area code that they live in?

How will my friends in 310 calling my 847 number be charged? As a long distance charge? If so, is there a way around this?

Thanks for ANY information.

Rich .....

BTW, I've been on hold with Vonage for 20 minutes to answer this question. I guess their support is non-existant!

Local and Toll charges for calling parties is the same as a POTS line - If the area code is local to the caller, then it is a local call based on the callers phone plan, if the area code is long distance to the caller, they will be billed as a toll call by their carrier. No way around it that I know of other than two numbers with different area codes.

You have three choices.

1-Get a local CA 310 number. People in 310 AC can call you as local but those in IL 847 will have pay long distance charges. A fourth option is to talk them into Vonage, then they can call you for free.

2-Get a local IL number. same principal applies but in reverse. Probably not the best choice.

3-Best Choice. Get a CA-310 number and a virtual IL-847 number assuming that Vonage has numbers in both places. Both numbers would then be local (310 in CA and 847 in IL). People in IL call your 847 number and those in CA call your 310 number. You would pay either the $24.99 unlimited or the $14.99 500 plan plus 4.99 for virtual number (plus taxes)

Great info from both of you.

bg4 ...... is that 4.99 charge per month or a one time charge?

Thanks again,
Rich

per month.

------------------
Virtual Phone Number
Get dedicated phone numbers outside of your area code or country for just $4.99 per month
A Virtual Phone Number is a way for people outside your local calling area to call you for the price of a local call if you choose a virtual phone number in their local calling area. Whether they're across the country or across the globe, your family and friends can call you like you're right next door.

How Does It Work?
Vonage Virtual Numbers are for incoming calls ONLY, so they ring to your primary Vonage line. This transfer is just as fast and seamless as any other Vonage phone call. Just like email addresses on one account, you can have as many Virtual Numbers as you like, and they're activated immediately.
