  1. Porting your existing phone number is probably another hurdle to switching to VOIP. Currently it takes Vonage about 20 days to port a number. In the meantime you must use a temporary number, which is not such a bad thing but can be a large worry for some. I will be porting my number to voip in the next week so this has been a topic on my mind.

  2. Of course, i think the big issue is that all these steps add to the overall anxiety about VoIP. Its not as much as the inertia of the whole thing which is going to slowdown the little operators, and turn things in favor of the cable and telephone companies who end up selling voip packages

  3. Another problem: a lot of us in the NE remember last year’s blackout and worry that–should we switch to VOIP–we’ll be out phone service if we’re out electricity, That’s a real problem. TShould the power go out again — or when the next terrorist attack happens — I want to know that I’ll have phone service. once the VOIP provlder s figure out a way to ensure power, I’ll switch.
