Cheapest way to keep landline phone number but not service

I have a VOIP landline (through Time Warner Cable). I want to get rid of my landline service but keep that phone number and have it forward to my cell phone (Verizon). What is the cheapest and easiest way for me to do that? Thank you!

Can I get landline caller ID on a cell phone?

Plug a landline into a 3G cellphone?

retrofitting 3G networks back down to landlines: My cellphone has a 1.75mm jack for plugging in earbud/wires. Is there RADIO SHACK technology that can let me somehow plug a "landline" into a cellphone? Is there a secret cellphone code that can generate a "dial tone"?
