In November I upgraded by ATT home phone and internet service. My land line was converted to an internet based phone (VOIP). After initial connection problems were resolved I found out that phone calls that originate from other internet based phone companies (Verizon, etc.) cannot get through to my phone. My parents call my home phone and get a "this number is not in service" message. I call from my office at a state agency and I get the same message.
I have numerous time contacted AT&T to no avail. They have tried to resolve the problem but have not succeeded. No one could figure it out. I filled out an email survey after numerous calls back and forth. I was then contacted by a Ruben (?) who said that he would research the issue and definitely get back to me within two days. That was a month ago, and I have not heard back from them.
The only recourse is for me to switch to comcast, but would I lose access to my email accounts through AT&T or Yahoo?
BCRscript - There are servers at each originating location that look up and route the call to your phone. Report to those providers that they are not processing/routing your number, At&t distributes your data & it is up yo each company to update their servers.
