I also do not understand the basis for either of these patents.

This is an obvious extension of 800 number service.

It does not meet patent requirements of a non obvious improvement of an existing technology nor completely unique idea.

I really don't understand the basis for these patents, myself.

Is it really any different from having my GoogleVoice number in Charlotte, NC called locally, and then forwarded to my Gizmo5 account, or fwd to any of my CallCentric, InPhonex, voip.ms DID's. Or, then have Gizmo5 forward the GV call to my iNum, or VoIP SIP address which I pickup on my ATA or softphone?

Are all these other VoIP services all of a sudden going to be sued for patent infringement because someone decided to patent these and related methods that have been used by others for a long time?

I agree there is a lot of fine line grey areas being patented in hopes of putting a strangle hold on the competition.
