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.

I'd like to move from using a land line to a VOIP service over my CenturyLink DSL. I'm afraid the service will suck. How can I evaluate this before committing to porting my phone number? [more inside]

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]

Time to kill the landline and consolidate communications...but can I keep that phone number? What's your best suggestion for keeping the landline number active? [more inside]

My girlfriend and I are going to different universities in the fall - hers in Peterborough, mine in Hamilton. What should we do about long distance phone calls? [more inside]
