Re: Test of *67

said by Davesnothere:

CallCentric's FAQ »www.callcentric.com/faq/31/221 describes this procedure.

So I entered *67 and waited for the 2nd dial tone, like I have done like forever on POTS lines.

Then I dialed the Anveo number.

This is not correct.

You do NOT wait for a 2nd dial tone. CC, thanks be to God, is not POTS.

You should examine your CC outbound call logs.

Also, note that you need to dial *671XXXXXXXXXX rather than *67xxxxxxxxxx

Thus, your experiment had two different chances of error.

Actually just the one chance, as I have been dialing 11 digits since (I think) CallWithUs required it ?

Would CC have accepted 10 digits for general domestic use ?

As posted above, I did figure out that I should not be pausing, but if CC and/or VoIPPs in general do something procedurally differently than POTS, ought not they to say so in their FAQ(s), and ought not they disable what appears to be the ubiquitous second dial tone and replace it with an indication of error, such as a busy signal or something ?

Anyway, it was a minor distraction from my quest, and I will check my CC outbound call logs as you suggested, just to see what they show.

Anveo's CNAM Dip Partner

 
So did you or anyone else here recently post the name of Anveo's CNAM Dip Partner, or am I mistaken ?

If yes, then please would you/they post it again ?


I would still like to formally troubleshoot how/why my name is appearing when I dial my Anveo number from my CC one.

And if CallCentric has published my name and number into some LIDB or whatever so that a partner of Anveo can dip it (if I understand that to be the correct description of the procedure - thanks Trev), should CC not have informed me of this, or even first asked me whether I wanted it to be done ?

What if I did not want it to be listed at all ?

And what of privacy issues ?

I WAS seriously considering asking to have purged the existing LIDB/CNAM/directory listings of whatever numbers I may port in to a VoIPP, and would also be quite curious how successful I would be in such a regard.

People gripe if a VoIPP [does] do LIDB population, and they gripe if it [does not].

Nobody's ever happy, it seems.

This is why VoIP engineers get prematurely gray in the US, and prematurely grey in Canada.

--------------------------

I find this quite interesting.

On one hand, you repeatedly say that VoIPP should follow POTS traditions.

On the other hand, you take issue with a VoIPP possibly doing LIDB population. But doing that is the gold standard for POTS! So the VoIPP would be doing exactly that which you claim to desire.

Yes, the strange paradox that is ME !

(aka "Please all, please none")

Actually, I am a small 'c' conservative late adopter of new things who just thinks that POTS costs too much for what they give you, but would be willing to pay VoIPPs somewhat more than many of them ask if they would just let me have what I want in phone functionality, and leave off what I don't, and communicate properly with me about all of it.

Kind of like the perennial BK ad hook.

BTW, customers can go grey/gray while sorting thru all of this too.

And some with few hairs TO change hue.

Just call me Mister Irony !

Hmmmm - now THAT's what I ought to request for my outbound CNAM/LIDB entry !

(and mayhaps my tombstone ? )
