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!

VOIP to Replace Security System Hardlines

My alarm system uses one main phone line and one backup phone line to check in with the security service company by, apparently, dialing and transmitting tones to a 1-800 number. Paying $40 each month, even for two measured lines, seems quite unnecessary, if a cheaper "VOIP" replacement could help instead. [more inside]
