Hi,
(1) Currently no, local numbers can not be ported to mobile, however Vodafone petitioned the ComCom to seek clarification on what is defined as a local number and what is mobile. Have a look at http://www.tcf.org.nz/library/a5458296-61ba-4474-b799-2eaa9bf01168.cmr page 32. This is also very good plain English what is LMNP.
(2) Its up to customers to check, the Telco knows since it has it in its DB, this can be problematic for customer that say has free calling on Voda to Voda calls but they don’t know their friend has moved to TCNZ with 021. As below each Telco has advised their customers on this.
(3) Similar for local and national except that the customer pays no matter if they are business and res it works the same apart from no local calling charge.
(4) In simple yes, the new entrant would need to comply to the comcom rules and negotiate with local telcos depending on what they wish to do.

Hi,
In simple no, even in a lot of instances a  local numbers cant actually be ported, if you have a TCNZ Albany number (09) 415 xxxx and move to Auckland central and stay with TCNZ you cannot have this ported howver if you take this to another telco that can provide access on their own network (not TCNZ wholesale) then you can !! The local part of LMNP means within the local calling zone.

tama: As for the initial question, yes IPMS is a live database and each ISP will be running a daily check (should be more than once a day, but it depends on each ISP preferences really) to make sure their copy of the IPMS database is up to date. Thus it will make sure that each ISP knows where to route a call to.


Just to clarify, the IPMS is accessible to telcos, not ISPs.

Thanks again for the responses.

Does anyone know if you can port a number from Telecom 027 onto an existing Vodafone 021 account?  or is it a requirement to set up a new account with Vodafone?
How about the other way around?  porting a number from Vodafone onto an existing Telecom account?

Thanks

You can have more than one phone line/mobile number on the one Telecom account. So I assume the same with Vodafone. However, if you already had a number on the account and wanted to use a ported number instead, you would have to cancel the existing number. You may also be liable for cancellation fees if you were in contract etc unless you had a special deal from the provider to whom you were porting.  (What a horribly long and tricky sentence.  Sorry folks...)(There you go, all fixed.)

Ok this whole thing has lead me to be more confused than I was at the start, but can you have your Vodafone Hardware using a Telecom Service(I know there is a difference between GSM and CDMA, I'm not asking about that)  But if you were to port your 021 number to Telecom, you have to use Telecom Hardware correct?  You can't use the same (GSM) hardware and be billed at Telecom rates...?

Thanks

Correct. If you port a Vodafone number to Telecom you will need a new phone that supports the CDMA standard. Same if you are doing the other way around.
