Hi

I run a UK VoIP Provider and am trying to find a similar operation in
New York who can provide me with a phone number of the form
1-212-NNN-0010.

If anyone can do this, please let me know.

thanks
peter

This would normally require additional fees for a "vanity number", but
even if you get lucky, you can only hit one or two of the 999 combinations
for the NNN in your number. I cannot think of a provider that has all the
exchange numbers in the area, let alone for the 0010 number that goes
pretty quick. Are you saying you are capable of pulling that off in UK?

Yes, I already have it, my london number is +44-020-7NNN-0010 (we're a
PSTN operator here in .uk), and being a telco-junkie I wanted a
matching US one, preferably in the 212 area code.

In the UK, we get allocated 10k blocks of numbers, so if you're the
operator, it's quite easy to pick the number you want

The fees aren't really the issue. As you say, I need to get lucky and
find the people who have the blocks, who can deliver them via SIP. So
far I've drawn a blank @ most of the usual suspects.

cheers
peter

You may want to give USADatanet a try ( www.usadatnet.com ). Their AllTalk
VoIP service has just been cranked up (with a few bugs) and they offer
virtual numbers for different area codes so it may be possible. They're
located here in Syracuse, NY.

You may well find that there simply aren't any NXX-0010 numbers available
in 212. The 212 area code has been completely full for years.

If I really wanted an -0010 number, I'd start by having someone call
all of the numbers from 212-200-0010 through 212-999-0010, note any
that appear to be vacant, and apologize for the wrong number to the
people at the more than 900 live numbers you'll have called. Then you
can tell from the NANPA charts what carriers have ones that appear to
be vacant and call them to see if you can get the number from them.
Depending on who it is, you may have to sign up for mobile service, a
pager, POTS over CATV, or whatever else they sell.

Since 212 is fully portable and the US does not have service-specific
numbers, once you have your number, you can port it to a carrier that
offers the service you want to use.

If this all sounds like more trouble than it's worth, maybe you should
either widen your horizons to 646 and 347, or just get any old number
and use it.

I know it's not what you want to hear, but www.ipkall.com supply free
Washington state (area code 360) numbers which you can route to any
existing SIP account. They may have one free with -0010..?

Thanks for the suggestion. Sounds like a good job for my office
junior...

yes, possibly. I've written to a large number of operators now, so
I'll wait for the fall out. Who knows, I may get lucky!
