    Can a business port landline numbers with past due balance to a VOIP service?

    I heard that for consumer phone numbers, providers cannot block porting out the phone number to a new service. But I can't seem to confirm that for businesses. Anecdotally, I've been told by others they've been told by Telus that past due balance needs to be paid, but that might have been for a Telus to Telus line and in this case, I would like to port the number to Shaw or a VOIP service.

    Anyone know if business numbers can be ported if they have past due balance?

    Thanks in advance!

    I was told by my telco, Verizon, that there was a problem porting because of yearly contracts for yellow page advertising. And I wanted to port a Verizon business landline to a consumer Verizon landline account. The FCC consumer guide to porting specifically says that a balance owed will not prevent porting.
