Hi all,

If an ex-Telecom number which has been ported away from Telecom for some time needs to be ported back to Telecom, but at a different exchange (still the same local calling area, however), are Telecom required by the ComCom to accept that port? I tried to do this but was turned down saying that the number is assigned to a different exchange - but technically the number shouldn't even be assigned on their network anymore!

Cheers Laughing

What you're wanting to do technically can't be done with Telecom's existing network.

Hmmm - yeah, they offered CustomerLink but I figure I may as well port it to 2Talk and forward the number from there (and save $15 a month and 5c per min).

Yup that would work.

Just FYI

The Local Number Portability rules give a Service Provider the right to reject (or accept) a customers request to port a number onto their network.

Am glad you were offered a solution.
