As promised here is my update.
Teksavvy dropped the ball on porting the number from Tektalk to LAN line.
They wanted to extend the porting date. When they informed me about the delay, I requested that they cancel the porting and keep my TekTalk going. Lo and behold, they canceled my TelTalk. I couldn't get any messages over the their portal. An hour later with customer service, I got it back, however, the phone did not work, no call in or calls out, at least we were getting messages through the web portal.
While all this was happening, the feeling helplessness was awful. I was frustrated and angry with Teksavvy that I almost canceled all my services with them. After calming down, I realized that forwarding feature still works on TekTalk. I forwarded the home number to my cell. It was annoying getting calls for the kids while at work. A light bulb flashed over my head, if I can forward the number to my cell, I can forward a number to a voip number. I sign up to VOIP.ms. It literary took me 15 minutes to setup. Since I already own the ATA and TekSavvy wants to charge me $25 restocking fee if I return it, it made perfect sense to keep it and use it with VOIP.ms.
I am happy with VOIP.ms service, no interruptions, voice quality is excellent and is cheap with full features. I just requested the phoneasamadi number to be ported to VOIP.ms.
, I have tried your method numerous times with no avail. The registration on the ATA fails. Tech support kept tracing the calls but could not figure out what went wrong. Like I said earlier after spending more than 75 hours with tech support is too much for one person to handle.
Sadly, TekSavvy relies on a third party for their system and I believe that is why many people are having issues with TekTalk.
Good luck to everyone
