I just went to Lingo and am very happy with the service.

I have to agree with you regarding the local number portability. LINGO
should be able to tell you up front if they can transfer the number OR
refund your money.

In my case, I also have Verizon for local service. I checked several
other providers (Vonage, ATT, etc.) and none of them said my number
was portable. Lingo could never confirm or deny ... they said it
depended on my current service provider. I called Verizon and the rep
I spoke with said there are no limitations whatsoever from their
perspective. Oh, I also emailed Verizon's tech support. Verizon. I
received a confirmation of my request and 3 business days later (5
days total) and I have not yet received a reply.

LINGO my suck but in my opinion, VERIZON SUCKS WORSE. Any idea why
Verizon would charge me $68/mth (including taxes) for local service
when I can get more features from Lingo. I'm pretty sure my fees to
Verizon don't include customer support because I have found Lingo to
be much more responsive (although not terrific).

I bit the bullet and said screw it ... I'm going to just give up on
porting my number. It's not worth the hassle. But I'm going to keep
Lingo. Verizon is fired.
