Rikki Don't Lose That (Phone) Number!

With apologies to Steely Dan, the danger of losing that number you got through your VoIP provider-or worse: ported to your VoIP provider from somewhere else-is very real, as Andy Abramson points out.

My experience with most of these VoIP providers, however, is not so great. If they support number portability, they will often let you port a number in and, possibly, port your number back out again. However, whatever they give you is usually not portable. That's not such a great thing for financially troubled companies like Vonage and the recently deceased SunRocket.
