I have a friend who's in miserable shape financially (going through divorce), and I try to give advice where I can. They live in PA (I'm mentioning it in case laws/processes vary by state) and since my experience w/ Voipo has been fantastic (especially with the annual pricing), I'm anxious to suggest it to them as an easy way to save $30-50/mo, but I've been biting my lip because I wasn't sure if VZ could refuse to port until they're paid up. They have a small home business, and losing access to their phone # is a non-starter. I scanned through the FCC site, and it doesn't look like VZ can refuse the port, but I couldn't find any explicit statement on the site one way or the other.
Any info is appreciated!
