As I bemoaned in yesterday’s post one drawback I encountered when switching over from Google Voice to paid, unlimited PhonePower was that the registration process INSISTED that I enter, and use my, Google Voice number.

I really wasn’t keen to do that. Google Voice does not, or at least did not use to, support the New Hampshire area code — i.e., 603. So I had to get a 207, i.e., Maine, area code with Google Voice. I hated using that because that is what appeared on Caller ID — and it confused most (though a few, who would not normally answer their phone, answered because they wanted to see who was calling them from Maine).

Today, though I knew they would be busy, I got in line at PhonePower support online chat. I was #9 in the queue. Wasn’t a problem. I could continue doing other stuff.

Funny.

They don’t see or even know of my 207 number!

They only know me via the new 603 number they gave me yesterday — albeit at my request.

They fixed the Caller Id thing in seconds. I tried it out by calling my cell. Yes, I now have 603 on my outbound PhonePower calls. I am happy.

So just letting YOU know.

All the best.

PhonePower appears to work. Their call log/history nowhere near as good as Google Voice. Damn.
