[VoiceOps] Vonage Port Department

I'm thinking it's not malicious, but probably just stupid. Then again,
Telesphere was rather sleazy-feeling, and Vonage doesn't seem to have
changed them. The pending order issue has hit us a few times. They seem
to have been internal orders between Telesphere and Vonage. When we
pressed with a statement from the customer saying they had not placed any
orders, the ports completed a short time later.
Most of our Telesphere ports were handled by Intelliquent, some by thinQ.
Of the two, thinQ was far better at handling them when something went wrong.
