Hey folks, I gave GV a try, but for some reason people aren't able to leave voicemails for me, so I'm giving up. I had my number ported to GV when I set this up, and now am trying to port back to my regular carrier (StraighTalk), who's having trouble getting the number ported from GV. I've UNLOCKED the number in GV, and there's a little box saying that the number is ready to be ported away. Is there anything else that I'm missing so as to allow my number to be ported away from GV?

Thanks for your help/comments.

I've successfully ported my number from GV to StraighTalk. Took three days.

America's latest "conversation about gun control" is over—and the NRA won again. http://theatln.tc/1hjg7lB
The Newtown shooting led gun-control advocates to try the same failed strategies again. And once again, they didn't work.

Disarm all the criminals - only then is there  a chance to disarm the populace. Since criminals will not comply with gun control laws, why should the honest man be made a victim?

Excellent service, wonderfully delicious and "light" food, beautiful presentation... Hallmarks of a gem of a restaurant! I'm going to make it a point to eat here each time I'm in town.

We recently bought a 250GLK BlueTEC from Glenn Hartzheim at Smythe, and honestly this was the most pleasant car-buying experience I've ever had. From the onset, our sales professional Glenn Hartzheim addressed every question that we had, and showed us everything that we asked to see, including specs of cars not located at Smythe, as no local car sported the exact configuration that we needed. We finally found a car that suited us well, and when asked about what can be done about pricing, Glenn came back with an offer that we couldn't refuse. Post-purchase, Glenn took his time showing us the features of the car, and was so detailed that my son nearly fell asleep in the backseat! Glenn also delivered the car to us, 50 miles away, when we couldn't pick up the car during the week - the car arrived in perfect condition, all washed and polished. We couldn't have asked for a better experience than what Glenn and Smythe offered. This is our second new MB from Smythe, and for sure our future cars will again come from the same people.

We didn't stay at this hotel, but just dined there on our first night in Mendocino. It was a weekday, and the place was relatively empty, which was great. We were seated in the "sun-room" area, where we could see out into the garden - excellent, as it was warmer than sitting outside. My wife and I ordered some raw and grilled oysters, both of which were served to very high standards. I had the fish tacos, which were really good (the fish was flavorful and perfectly crispy) while my son had a tomato-based pasta dish with sweet peas and mushroom (which we kept stealing from his plate) that was nicely flavored and al dente. We didn't take a dessert, but the coffee was quite good. We'd go back the next time I'm in town. Based on the review, we probably wouldn't stay there.

Booka fell well short of our expectations for a "fine-dining" establishment this past Friday evening. When we asked for a booster seat, the staff seemed confused and unprepared. After more than 10 minutes of waiting without drinks, we had to flag down a busboy to find our server. We ordered some appetizers and a kid's pasta for our son. The appetizers came promptly, but so did our son's pasta; this caused the table to overflow with plates, and the male server simply shoved all the dishes onto the table without arranging things properly (I had to help him). After that, it was a LONG wait before our entrees arrived, and all the shrimps were overcooked. I told the server that when paying my bill, and she replied that this was the first time that this had happened (I'm just an unlucky soul, I suppose). Needs polish, as the service is amateurish, and the food well-conceived, but poorly executed (a bit heavy for my tastes). I wouldn't recommend it to a friend, but am willing to give it another shot in six months.

We've had some fancy dim sum in San Francisco and Cupertino, so weren't expecting much when we ordered some shiu-mai and hagow just for kicks. Well these turned out quite good! They're not as sophisticated as others we've had, but good enough! In shiu-mai, we look for moisture and appropriate amount of salt - these were very good in both departments.

During our week-long vacation on the coast, this was hands down the worst place we had a meal at... here's why: Our first impression upon seeing the dining room was that everything was very dated... the posters on the wall were faded, as were the dark green tablecloths. The chairs were regular wooden ones, more fitting for a deli, and looked like they'd been used thus. Oh boy. We were greeted by two females who were rather stingy with their smiles - that was a sign of things to come. We were seated at one of the booths in the middle of the room, and were handed menus. There were some seemingly-good choices, so we selected a salad to share, and furthermore salmon and duck entrees. After taking our order, the waitress simply up and left, leaving our menus on the table, barely hanging on to the edge, right where she was standing... huh?! 10 minutes later she realized her mistake, came by, and took them away, without a chuckle or apology. So we waited another 5 minutes, and the salad came. No salad plates - we were forced to use our little bread plates (with butter on them) to eat our salads... by this time I really wanted to leave, but didn't want to make a scene. Post-salad, the entrees came. They did NOT look appetizing at all, quite ugly, in fact. The salmon came on a beat-up white plate, and was a pale looking pink that made me wonder about its freshness. One bite into it and it was obvious that this wasn't fresh fish, as it tasted gummy, under-seasoned, and just awful. There wasn't much else on the plate, except some garnish that looked really tired. My wife's roast duck came looking burned (and the skin was burned), and it was overcooked and dry; my 5-year old son commented that it tasted like turkey, and the dry kind at that! Both entrees cost $30+ dollars... and I made up my mind then that I'd write a review of the experience here so no one else gets stiffed at this god-awful place. When the waitress next came around, I asked her how long the restaurant's been in business; she said 25 years. No wonder, I thought, all the spark and imagination had gone out the kitchen window a long time ago. I'm not sure if Chef Irving of Restaurant: Impossible could have done anything for this place! An older female settled our bill; I presume that she was the owner... she also seemed really tired, and service had just started at 6:30 pm, and this was on a Thursday, when the restaurant reopened after its weekly rest. We glanced over at Cafe Beaujolais next door upon leaving, and wondered why we didn't just go with the sure bet - we'd been to it before, and greatly enjoyed our experience there.
