Routing issue voip.co.uk

    A work colleague has signed up for an account with voip.co.uk and she
    has been issued with a Walsall number in the format of 01922 66xxxx.

    She has set up her account with a Linksys SPA2102 and she can make
    outgoing calls without a problem, incoming calls is another story.

    Calls from a BT landline connect without fail. Calls from a Virginmedia
    landline & Vodafone mobile both fail. When I try to call from my Virgin
    Mobile occasionally the call will connect, most times I get "The number
    you have dialled has not been recognised."

    I guess this is a routing issue but I don't understand why my calls
    occasionally get through. I called Virgin Mobile customer services and
    they have passed the details to their tech guys and will get back to me.

    If she reports this to voip.co.uk will they be able to sort the routing
    problem with the other telco's?

    UKphoneinfo.com reports 01922 66 as being available since Feb 02 so
    surely this problem shouldn't exist?

    She should report it to her provider. It is possible that some operators
    have not been advised of the range or otherwise have not built it.
    Normally this would mean that calls either work or do not work, whereas
    you say that they do sometimes work - this may indicate that the problem
    is elsewhere, or that VM use multiple routes to get to voip.co.uk (or
    their upstream).

    I am currently using Virgin Mobile. I can call my voip.co.uk number
    with no problem at all. I can receive calls from Orange and '3' and O2
    OK but don't know about vodafone. However, the set up is slightly
    different to yours. I have the voip.co.uk account registering with
    voxalot. Then I register voxalot with my ATA.
    Calls to voip numbers, in general, from 18185/1899 take a while to
    connect. Generally they are OK but can sometimes be a bit hit and
    miss.
    Calls to my line from BT are usually OK and so are calls from Telewest
    area landlines.

    Report it and they will investigate. We had problems with some of our
    office numbers (we have 30 offices) after they were reallocated to a
    company providing carrier preselect (CPS) for us. It took about 2 weeks
    to have things sorted and it was down to the CPS company, but voip.co.uk
    got on the case and pestered them until they sorted it.

    Yes I have no problem with my voip.co.uk number which is 0121 270xxxx
    but there does appear to be a problem with 01922 66xxxx.

    She has sent a secure message to voip.co.uk support so we'll see what
    they say.
