After some information/advice if anyone has any details:
Can anyone tell me what the cause is for 5 calling areas in NZ to not allow porting to VFX? Is it exchange equipment that will be resolved at some point or something else?
One option is setup and forward the number to an VFX Palmerston North number which is not ideal as their local calls are now toll calls. Anyone know the costs for setting up Telecom to forward a number to another provider?
According to 2talk website they have Levin as a region and states all their regions are number portable so appears that is another option (weird they seem to do it but not Xnet?). http://blog.2talk.co.nz/regionalnumbers.html
