We did verify the CSR information. All but one phone number was correct. There other phone number had the correct address, but a zip code of something like 12345.

The problems that we've been having lately have ranged from there's a pending order, which there was not. We got that one a few times. Now this is the second time they tell us that they have everything cleared and that it should be good to go.

I don't know that I can help much, but we certainly have had a LOT of
issues with Vonage.  They seem to be mostly on numbers that were previously
with Telesphere, who they bought out.  Many of them failed because
Telesphere had their own address on them.  So you might ask your provider
"is the billing address this?"  In a few cases, that worked, they said yes,
and completed the ports.

This is the Telesphere address:  9237 East Vía de Ventura, Scottsdale, AZ

Another partial success has been telling the customer to call Vonage and
get a CSR.  Partial because their idea of a CSR is a spreadsheet that may
or may not be correct, but when it is, voilà.  And even when it's not, it
shows our porting provider that we tried, and the customer clearly does
have a proper relationship with Vonage.

Good luck.
