I agree, anytime you deal with a ported number (LNP) you are increasing
your chances of problems occuring.

I have CallVantage, and the one problem I had was radio station
interference on the line. I could hear a local AM radio station clear
as a bell when I was talking on the phone (or rather, when I was
silent). I fiddled with my home wiring for days looking for shorts or
loose ends. Finally I called AT&T and asked for Inside Wiring to
report the problem. They said it was a "known issue" with my
equipment (Linksys RT41P2). I asked why it wasn't on their webpage
list of known issues. They didn't have a good answer for that.
However, they did provide me with a fix, a simple filter (the kind you
buy for your other lines when you get DSL) works. The noise is now
eliminated and I am happy.
