John Shrall Posted May 11, 2019 Report Share Posted May 11, 2019 I think most people know that ILOX assigns a telephone number to your service at the time of install. The number is 376-109-xxxx. You can plug your telephone into the router and use that number. You can also port your existing Telmex number to ILOX. I asked for the port last week as part of the install but the installers missed a step. In order to port your phone number you have to give ILOX a pin number (nip) from Telmex. You get that number by dialing 051, listening to the message and hanging up. The phone rings immediately giving you the 4 digit pin. Once they had the pin the transfer happened quickly. I have emailed a couple of times asking for what sort of services ILOX might offer with the change. Call forwarding? Call Waiting? Voicemail? So far no response other than we'll look into it. I believe calls to Mexico, US and Canada are unlimited but I think there is a limit to the number of calls to a Mexican cell. Again, not sure. Inbound cell calls show up with the country code on caller ID somewhat messing up portable phone contacts but no big deal. The other assumption is that I can go to Telmex and totally cancel service but still protecting my original home number ported to ILOX. It works that way in the US but we're not in the US so assumptions could be painful. No problems with the phone service except for the 2 hour outage this week that has been noted. Not a big deal with a cell phone. Magic Jack is finally stable after struggling with abysmal upload speeds from Telmex. No one could hear us and calls dropped. TV shows download in under a minute as opposed to 8-10 and while downloading no other user is affected. HD content? FAST. Anyone who has additional information about ILOX telephone please comment.
