Re: Vonage Improvement: No More Dial 1+

The problem is that they're transmitting caller ID with a 1, so when you go to re-dial a number from CLID guess what happens.

They are having problems, not doubt about it. Today I come home, pick up the phone and get stutter tone. Ok, check voice mail. No connection. Hmm, try dialing my number from my cell and I get "Your call cannot be completed as dialed..."

What the hell! It appears to be working now but during this time I could not even access my web account. It looks like a Vonage server took a hit.
