Good Morning all,

I have been asked if I can recommend a service to port a UK VodaPhone number to for twelve months to two years while a friend is on foreign assignment.

They are most interested in protecting the number, but would also like being able to get Voicemail and SMS as email from it.

Any recommendations ?

TIA --

I would think maybe DIDWW could do that for you, but you'd have to check with them. They seem to be able to get a lot of interesting things done and have been around a LONG time. I should mention though UK mobile numbers don't port like NA so may not be possible. Why not put on prepaid then forward somewhere?

I'm in the UK and what I do when going away for longer is to put my UK SIM into a 3g dongle and I get the call via asterisk (chang_dongle). SMS come to my email. If this is beyond your capability you can forward the Voda number to any other UK number (which can be VOIP). Not sure whether texts gets forwarded though.

@atsak Thank you, I will check them out Monday. An I have the PCAC code already so it should port..

@dziny, A port is the most appropriate process if I can do it. Due to this latest step up the executive ladder he has no clue if or when he would be back in the UK.
