Are there ever cases when local land line companies are able to refuse porting a number? If so, what can a costumer do to fight? The FCC regulations clearly indicate that porting is a right of the number user. Any suggestions? My local company is giving me and Ooma a hard time.

They can't really refuse porting in the long-term but sometimes they give you trouble on the port.

The most likely one is if you dropped some services in anticipation of the port, some phone companies put a hold or lock that blocks the port for 30 days after any change.

However if you persist and complain enough they will eventually have to honor the port.

Thanks for the prompt reply. BTW, I did not drop any services in anticipation of the porting. Hopefully, that might make it go faster.
