Sunrocket done at COB today
Porting a number is "pull" process most of the time. This means that there need not be anyone alive on the other end to release the number. The only system that will still see the number at its original location is the system that you have ported from. In SR's case, they'll be "bricking" or killing their ATA's today sometime, so this won't be a problem. Secondly, SunRocket never bothered going through the registration to get its own numbers for a number of reasons (good for everyone, as it turns out), so proof of number ownership lies with the upstream number providers anyways: Global Crossing, Qwest, Broadwing.
How to Port:
- IMPORTANT: Print out a SunRocket statement from the web site!
- Open an account with your chosen provider, and tell them you'd like to port the number.
- Send them a copy of the printed statement (not that it says much).
- Once inbound calls start working on your new equipment, call SunRocket to cancel your account. Skip that step - they're no longer answering.

If the decision (at Sherwood Partners) is not to blow away the actual Gizmo firmware (killing them permanently), one should technically be able to re-use them for whatever service one ports to.
