RE: [registrars] .info transfers from Verisign

I will say that we haven't had many problems with Verisign and
transferring .info domains.  We always have problems with transferring
.info domains away from register.com.

Our customers have received some great responses from register.com
support.  I don't have the emails in front of me but I remember a few of
them because they were so funny.

I remember one of the first emails about transferring an .info domain
away from register.com, the customer support rep told our customer that
they should contact Tommy Williams at Afilias and he could transfer the
domain to directNIC and it included his phone number.

Another one said that you can't transfer .info domains at all.

And I just found one email from about 7 days ago.

Dear Mr. xxxxxx, 
Thank you for your inquiry. 
To transfer the registrar of your domain name from Register.com to 
another registrar, you must initiate the transfer through the registrar 
you wish to transfer to. Unfortunately, Register.com is unable to assist

you in this matter. Please contact the registrar to which you wish to 
transfer your domain name registration. 
If you have any additional questions, please contact Register.com. 
Best Regards,

Every time we get a .info transfer from register.com, I have to contact
Afilias support, they then send an email to Register.com support and
usually the first time we don't get a response.  Then about a week
later, I bug Afilias again, and they send another email to register.com
support.  And usually the auth_info codes arrive to the customer a day
or two later.

We are still waiting for the auth_info codes from the latest Afilias
email that was sent last week.
