So the big telcos are blocking (read more here). Nasty corporations, this is outrageous, etc etc. Anyone got a quick and easy workaround (other than skype)?

Most services will give you alternate numbers that are not being blocked.

for example

There are oodles of these services, and any kid with an Asterisk box and a deal with a local telco can set one up. The big telcos need to come to terms with this "problem", which isn't a problem so much as the other edge of a sword they've enjoyed swinging for many years.

First, file a complaint with the FCC. Second, call your telco's customer disservice line. If they give you the brush-off, turbo that shit. If the block isn't removed quickly, change telcos.


Port your number out and go somewhere that treats you like a customer, not a goldfish. When you leave the old telco, tell them why, and consider sending a copy of your letter to the local newspaper.

Drawing attention to megacorps screwing their customers is never a bad thing.
