So, I talked about how Packet 8 messed us over when we tried switching to them for VoIP. Well, we’re looking around now, not giving up on the idea quite yet, but we have hit a new snag… 911 service.

It seems, according to Verizon Voicewing, that no one is able to give us 911 service, so they don’t want us as a customer due to liability issues. That’s all wonderful, however, while we fall in the Kirksville 911 calling area… our house is outside of the area they’ll come out to! Even though we can call 911, they just go “Sorry, we can’t come out there.”

I am going to keep trying to find a VoIP provider who doesn’t care, but we’re kinda screwed for the moment and it’s getting annoying!
