Call your current provider and ask if the number can be ported at all.

Ooma may work but, it will use your bandwidth where Excede voice usage doe not count against your usage allowance.

Hi Kjboxers,
Yes, give your current phone provider a call and see if they will release you phone number over to us. As long as they allow the number to leave we can get it ported for you. OOMA will use up your data with us unlike our Voice service. Once you find out if you can port your number give us a call so we can start that process for you and get you hooked up with the Exede Voice. Exede Emerald

Yes, any VOIP (voice over internet protocol) will work with Excede. You do not say which provider you are porting from, but if it is MagicJack, be prepared for a long uphill battle. It will take weeks and cost you about 30$ before they will even lift a finger to release the number. (a complaint to the FTC doesn't hurt either).

I do not know how the other providers work with porting out numbers, but if it is Verizon, no problem, other VOIP providers, probably the same as MagicJack. (note, there is no number to call MagicJack, just a chat window)

There is a caveat to all of this as, no VOIP provider (MagicJack, Ooma, Vonage, etc.) will support their service on a satellite internet connection even though it works very well, except Excede Voice.

Your dime, your choice.
