Sam understands it all very well.

I agree with both you and Ms. Hancock that the LECs don't want it to
be easy.

I do disagree that it takes much research, though, to determine one's
local calling area, at least in California and a few other states that
I am familiar with that have all local office codes that are local
clearly listed in the front of the phone book.

Then again, some of today's consumers can't find Mexico on a world
map. ;-)

As to extended calling plans that some folks may have, that is
irrelevant when selecting a primary or virtual number for Vonage. Why
make it more complicated than it has to be?

Vonage makes it easy, really easy.
