And now you know why it's standard operating procedure:

*Never* tell the losing service provider they're losing *until you've
actually done the cutover*.

If that costs you some money, well, at least you didn't go off the air.

Responsibility for you not going off the air rests, finally, with you.
Your clients don't care if you later win the lawsuit.
