my DSL provider is ATT and after much debate, i have decided to keep my Core (hub/scout) package
when i call ATT i should ask them to???
get me a second phone number and attach the DSL to that number?? can this number + dsl also be made into a line 1 number so dont have to swith phone jacks????
i guess i am asking what i specifically need to ask the ATT rep in order to have a seamless number port, i.e. when my number ports, my DSL is not automatically discontinued...
thanks in advance
option2 which was porting the number and when ported the dsl cancels would incur: $50 termination fee of DSL + losing the $10/month DSL discount i had + waiting for 5 days to establish new service/dsl
both options stink!!! any of you previous ATT/SBC employees know a runaround to what i want done??
Or why not just order a second DSL line/account... once installed and active, PORT away the other number to Ooma. Note this is just an assumption of simple facts there very well may be other fine print issues that I may very well be possibly over looking. I dont see why not in my experience but things can vary from location to location.
seems ATT has gotten "smart" and added a few hoops to jump in order to accomplish my goal. at the very least, these hoops will cost me $50 (early termination of 12 month DSL contract) PLUS loss of $10/ month retention discount.
I am at month number 1 for both the contract and the discount.
paying $25/month DSL with the elite service with discount (normally $35/month) and a dry loop starts at $45 i believe
when weighing wether to port the number, the costs tilts towards KEEPING THE NUMBER with ATT. i can live with this
