Recently ordered a new Vonage line. The new line does not require a "1" prefix.
I was spending $50 per new line for a device that inserted the 1. This is Great news![TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Since there is no price differential on Vonage in most cases (I still have a 500 minute limited account but most users do not) the '1' is pointless and a waste of time. _Everything_ is ten digits; even locally, and the price is the same no matter what. However, some people do not know that Vonage can also be _seven digits_ with area code (where the box was installed, or 'home area') assumed. Like telco, if nothing is dialed after seven digits, then it sits there for a few seconds to time out, and deals with what it got. PAT]
