Hi Scriv, We tried Lingo but could not get it to work reliably and their voice quality was horrible when it did work. Their support is overseas so expect to be treated like a number instead of a person. LNP's are hard to get approved and people calling our ported number often got a busy signal when we were not on the phone. Even if we were on the phone, they should not have received a busy signal because we their service is suppose to include call waiting. During the first week or two after our number was ported, some callers received a "This number has been disconnected" message when they called us. My advice is to turn and run.
