New Ooma number questions

Post by ffxjack » Tue Jul 10, 2012 6:02 pm

I've decided not to bother spending the $40 (and several weeks) to port my old number over from FIOS digital voice and just stick with the new number assuming I still like Ooma in a few weeks. For now, I've forwarded all my calls from the land line to the new Ooma number.

Anyone know if I disconnect service with Verizon Fios, will they leave a forwarding message that the number has been changed for people who dial the old number?
If I don't like Ooma for some reason down the road, can I port the Ooma number to another service (Verizon, Cox, Vonage, etc)?

You will have to ask Verizon on the message question but I doubt it.
I'd just spend the 40 bucks.
You can port your number out of Ooma even if assigned by Ooma.
