Sorry if this has already been asked (I did try looking but hey, its 5:30am, I'm dying here :P) , although there was a similar question in the Faxing with VFX thread pretty much directly below this one.

If I were to signup with VFX and call divert all the calls on my Telecom line to the VFX number, would I be able to port this number over to the same VFX line on April 1st?

Thanks in advance :)

I can't answer that particular question (even though I believe the answer is yes) but on a related issue the problem is that you're an ADLS customer still going to need a Telecom line with a Telecom number from the 1st April. If you port your existing Telecom number you'll still need to pay for another one until unbundling occurs.

Yeah I know. It's for a second line - the DSL is on the primary line. I just like the number :P

It's too bad Wired Country seems to be getting worse and worse, it used to be great for VoIP. Sadly, I've had to switch to the "fantastic" Telecom ADSL network - although, sarcasm aside, I don't really have any major complaints. I live next door to the exchange! :)

Edit: Are we sure number portability isn't just an April fools joke? :D

We will have Portability on the 1st of April , all Carriers and Service Providers must be ready by this date or the government and Telco Commissioner will have us Laughing, we will be ready btw so we don't intend to miss the date
