Thus, I'd like to the existing phone number active (in some way) during the ADSL -> NBN conversion - if that is indeed possible (I'm not too concerned about any extra cost this may involve).
My current thoughts:
* Maybe I can use voicemail or call diversion as a workaround? Would this be possible?
* Would I be able to enable voicemail/call diversion during the NBN conversion? (Or does the NBN/VOIP number need to be active before I can enable voicemail/call diversion?)
* Or maybe I need to get a temporary number? (Not really a solution I like though)
* Any other ideas?
