Who owns that toll free number? [sawing] That's the difference, any number you get from us you OWN with NO STRINGS! Our lawyers want us to say you technically own the end user and portability rights and can use it with ANY phone company you want. Everyone else is trying to keep you there paying them for the service. That's especially true for the website-only services you'd never heard of and even the biggest phone companies tend to drag their feet and look for any reason at all to reject transfer requests and drag their feet as much as possible.
