11 October 2007
VoIP provider, SunRocket created a flood of questions when the Virginia-based company closed its doors abruptly on July 16, 2007. The company ceased all operations without warning to customers or employees. The official cut-off date for service was expected to be August 5. While many SunRocket customers were to be absorbed by other VoIP providers, some customers actually got more than they bargained for.
One Washington-based customer temporarily lost his phone number during the brief period between the SunRocket closure and the take-over of the new provider. This customer was relieved when his number was returned to him, until he received a strange phone call.
