Default Vonage-Will having a local number prevent calls?

I have Vonage with a local 386 area code. My main number is 203 in CT. Will this prevent him from calling?

It should not be a problem. just set up an account with CBS if i knew the website i would put it in but i have that on my other computer

ok i found the number so here you go try this Call correctional billing services 1-800-644-6591 they will be able to help follow the prompts.

Does Vonage allow collect calls? I dont think so. I tryed virtual phone number and set it up to the same area code as my sons. No deal, I switched to at &t. cheap rates i think. about 2$ for 15 min call.

You can receive calls through Vonage from the prison, but you have to setup a prepaid account through CBS in order to do so. Right now CBS is having issues with any kind of virtual numbers so be glad you have an actual landline because most of the virtual account people are experiencing their lines being blocked right now.

I used vonage for over a year but last Sunday the phone was blocked and I didn't even realize it until Monday night. CBS stated that I had to change to another carrier and set up a new account because they were unable to monitor calls from voip phones. So now we are waiting on BJ's phone list to be updated so he can call home. I'm so sad and I miss him so much. CBS did this out of the blue with no notification.

CBS placed a block on my line a couple of weeks ago as well but miraculously they took it off. I called and it said line clear and I got word to him to try calling. We've been back talking for almost a week now. We're seeing how it goes though.
