Re: Vonage Trying to Reuse My SC Number

This is a concept I don't understand. How can their (and Voicepulse's) AUP to prevent their customers from porting numbers out? I believe the FCC mandate is to require number portability. If they can escape this responsibility by simply adding a clause to their policy, then what is the point?

That sort of makes sense. It suggests an administrative/managerial weakness in their process.

However, Voicepulse did stop me from porting a number.

It wouldn't surprise me. But as I stated, I called Vonage about it. They've assured me they will do nothing to hijack my number. And I called Carolina Net (my current provider). They are asking their porting folks to be sure my number isn't ported again.

Would it be possible for a VOIP company to port away someone's number without a copy of their bill and a signed authorization? If so, that stinks.
