How do I purchase my old phone number?

So I moved, had to get a new phone number. It happens. But now my alma matter's released their yearly screenplay directory, and it still has my old number (I moved after the submission deadline, so I couldn't get it changed).
I tried calling my old number so I could just ask the current residents to forward my calls, but I just got the "not in service" message. Does anyone know any special tricks to getting the phone company to sell you back your old number? The other problem is that I'm currently in a different borough (Brooklyn, used to be in Manhattan).
