 [DEF(1]VBSII like VBS1 is Grandfathered to existing customers.  Should we add the same language that is in the VBSI doc to say that VBSII is no longer available to new customers….I think the grandfathering date was back in 2007 when we went to VBSIII. I can confirm the dates with Michael Hall.  New LOGOS and Renewals  must move VBSIII Local Voice Product Family/contract.
