Re: I'm with Vodafone

A friend recently moved from Post Office exchange local loop - to Vodafone for FTTC and landline phone.

The new broadband worked ok - but they couldn't transfer her old phone number. They allocated a "temporary" one.

Several months later after much badgering - Vodafone said they couldn't get Post Office to release her old number so the "temporary" one has now had to become permanent. The old number just says "unobtainable" - so it hasn't been given to someone else.

Is there any technical reason why moving to FTTC should have made it impossible to move the old number?
