vonage

so I've had trouble with my experimentation with my Vonage phone. However it appears almost all of my troubles have been user error. First I didn't know that I needed to always dial the area code. Then it would work sporadically. However I then realized that I've been spoiled by my cellphone and only randomly added the initial 1 for the full 11 digit phone number (for some reason cell phones don't care about the initial 1).

I never fully appreciated the utility of the voice error messages from traditional phone service. (On the other hand with traditional phone service, I can't tcpdump the signaling information like I can with vonage.)
