thought perhaps Verizon was doing it.

In my case, my VoIP box is forwarding to my Apache server through a firewall configured using Shorewall. Shorewall was blocking RFC1918 IPs from the outside world, meaning private IPs couldn't come in from the Internet. Well, with the VoIP box in front of my firewall, *all* traffic was coming from a public IP. Making an exception for the VoIP box's IP and the server's "external" allowed port forwarding to work. The same could happen with a regular router if you have a firewall behind it instead of in front of it.
