Can I get landline caller ID on a cell phone?

Caller ID on landlines typically shows the name of the person or business calling. Caller ID on cell phones only shows the name if you have it in your cell phone contact list. Otherwise it just shows the number. Why the difference? [more inside]

Best VOIP to replace home phone landline?

It seems like I am the last person on earth to give up my expensive residential landline. I did sign up with Vonage but quickly cancelled when I realized I was being lied to and getting conflicting answers about fees/billing (then I read the horrible reviews about their customer service). I do not like talking on my cell phone and always grab for the landline when at home if I need to make an outgoing call. I want good quality (no delays, echoes, etc.), competitive price, good customer service and reliability (yes, I want it all!). [more inside]

How best to get rid of office landline?

I work from home and have an established business phone number that I need to keep. I'd like to port the number somewhere that sends the call to voicemail and return the call with my cell phone. I don't need to call from the office number, just receive voicemails. Do you have any recommendations for services you like that are cheap? I found "parkmyphone.com" which says what I need would be $5/mo plus $20 transfer fee to port the number, but don't know if it is reliable. I don't know anything about Skype or voip solutions. GoogleVoice doesn't allow landlines to be ported into it. If it matters, I have an Android Galaxy S4 with T-mobile for my cell service. Thanks!

Are directory listing and caller ID identity linked?

With AT&T landlines, is your directory listing (i.e. what's in the phone book) necessarily the same as what people see on caller ID?
