I finally decided to get rid of my local phone service from Sprint along with my AT&T long distance service.
First I checked out Lingo. I actually subscribed and had it installed. Then they told me they could not port my old phone number. They included Europe in their included calling arae, so I hated to not use them, but my wife wanted to keep our old number so we returned the Lingo equipment and they issued a refund. They were very friendly and professional to deal with.
Then I checked on Vonage. They were able to immediately determine they could not port my number, so I did not have to sign up.
Then I looked at AT&T CallVantage. They took a couple of days to determine if they could port my number, determined they could, and then shipped their Telephone Adapter (TA). The installation was easy, and the number ported over on exactly the day they said it would. We like the service and are getting used to having to dial the area code on local calls. The audio is very good and the voicemail to email feature is great.
My overall monthly costs for telephone should drop from about $75.00 to $29.95.
