Toll-free numbers may be ported by Customer to another carrier subject to the charges set forth below. If Customer cancels a toll-free number or terminates service, the toll-free number may not be available to port if it has been released to the SMS pool or re-assigned to a new customer. It is Customer’s responsibility to port the toll-free number(s) prior to account cancellation. There are some vanity and premium numbers that are not portable and do not become the property of Customer. Most US Domestic numbers are portable the same as the toll-free numbers, however these numbers are provided by third party vendors and VIP2Phone does not have complete control over the provisioning, use and portability of such numbers. The International local and international toll-free numbers are not portable unless Customer has really good contacts with foreign Telecoms. There is no fee to port toll-free or local numbers to VIP2Phone.
Certain Vip2Phone, INC Services provide a function that allows to Customer to record individual telephone conversations. The laws regarding the notice, notification, and consent requirements for recording conversations vary from state to state.
