The Porting Period
The FCC has changed its number porting rules to shorten the porting period for “simple” ports from the current four days to one business day. The new deadline applies to all simple ports, including “intermodal” ports such as wireline to wireless, wireless to wireline, wireline or wireless to VoIP, or any other combination. Simple ports generally do not involve more than one line or more complex adjustments to telephone switching equipment. Wireline, wireless, and interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers are required to meet this new, simple port deadline, which will take effect in late summer 2010 for most carriers. Small, rural carriers have a longer period, until the beginning of 2011, to meet the new porting deadline.
Had my number ported on 3/12 but my internet connection went down. Ooma handled my porting with my carrier but my carrier disconnected my whole line. But that was no big deal because the number was ported and I could get my voicemails thru the web as they came in. My landline phone carrier AT&.. had 3 different orders running to my home. Each time I called my landline carrier they were messing my service up
On 3/22 my carrier arrived and did a rewiring and got me up and fully running. 30 days of my free premier service was shot because of this. I am hoping they extend my free trial service. Customer support was pretty quick each time, only once so far I waited 5 minutes for Oooma support. I'm finally up and running smooth.
Thank You Ooma this is the System I have been waiting for
