A lot of folks lament the lack of available phone numbers shown them (0).
I just registered on ring.to in order to port a number I have.
They will also assign numbers.
I saw at least 10 in area 509 and over 30 in 360.
There may be a restriction on porting out the assigned number.
The cost to: port in $0, port out $0, park $0 - such a deal
----
Best use here is port your active cell to ring.to
Deactivate phone, wait up to 30 days for clean esn.
Activate phone in FP.
Port your cell # from ring.to to FP.
----
I installed Groove IP lite
Picked a number I liked.
Up came a dialer !
I dialed my main cell, it rang, I answered it.
I said hello into both.
About 0.5 seconds delay, not too bad!
Free calls ( on wifi ) will use data on 3G/4G but still free other wise.
Don't know what limits there are, yet.
--->that was the fastest VoIP setup an call I've done since I started VoIP ing 7 years ago.

All I am doing, now is waiting for Tuesday when I will know if my port request will work. 5 more days to finish if so.

    @Rich Sias ( LastDay: 16th )

    Nice Job....360 for Washington is the (sticks/middle of nowhere) in area codes....Unless you live way up south...bellingham-blaine...closer to the border in Canada...

    What most of us would love to have...

    253--206---425----360 last

    253-206 are the numbers to look for

    did you see any of the first three....

    Good Looking out!!!!

    Now that I've picked a number, I can't go back to the chooser any more. There's gotta be a way to change settings in Groove IP somehow.
    Found it lower left built in button off screen.

    253 - Graham, Tacoma, Sumner in first ten
    206 - none
    425 - none
    509 - Spokane
    If I type 253 66
    It searches area 253 with a pair of 6's in last 7 digits.
    Can search by zip code or city, state
    I got back in with 2nd email like FP wants. Just NOT selecting number this time.

    Looks like you get choice of three cities from 253.
    I tried many digit pairs, only got numbers from same three cities, never a fourth.

    @Rich Sias ( LastDay: 16th )

    You Freeking Rock!!!!!!So I can try and get this ring.to number and than port it to FP?

    I might activate on of my spares and try this---If it works, I can swap all the numbers I have.....

    Right now we are using Oregon numbers--Except one(he got a 360 number)

    I totally space the 509 area code!!!!!Richland, Pasco, and Kennewick Tri Cities!!!

    You Rock!!!!!!

    I know it free to port in and free to port out an inported number.
    However, there might be either a fee or not allowed to out port assigned numbers. They seem to treat them a bit different.
    At the very least it can be used as a forwarding no. To FP.

    I pounded 509 n, to see some different cities.
    Spokane 795 850, Liberty Lake 255, Coulee Dam 631, that's all I could find, 4 exchanges, 3 cities for area code 509.

    If you choose a number using grooveip to sign up for ring.to there is a $5 fee to port the number out. If you get a number from google voice the port out fee is $3.

    Someone said in forum porting into Google Voice is $20 out is $3.
    I did see the $5 in ring.to but wasn't real sure what it applied to as the portin then out was free round trip. Hey, even $5 for a number seems kinda cheap.
    Since Google is $3 to port out from assigned no. How's their supply of WA state numbers ?

    @Rich Sias (LastDay: 16th) That information was from me. Yes, if you port in to google voice it is a $20 fee. But, if you get a free google voice number and port it out there is only a $3 port out fee.

    I was in a situation where I could not get a FP phone number in my area code so I got one in google voice, paid the $3 and ported it to my new FP phone.
