US Phone Number

Hi All,

Anyone have any experience or suggestions about keeping a US phone number by parking it, call forwarding...

I've had it for 20 years and would like to track it for a while to see who calls it. And I may reactivate it when back in the States.

Thanks

You would be better with a 'Voip' (voice over IP) phone. A Voip phone is a telephone transferable to any location with a hard wire internet connection access point.

I have an Ooma. Google Ooma and you will find the equipment and locations to buy it at. With Ooma I 'ported' my local landline phone number and it is now on my Ooma phone which (in theory) can be used virtually anywhere I take it in the world that has a hardwired internet connection for me to plug it into.

Good Luck!

- Howie

I transferred my 25 year old number to Google voice. Now google sends me an email every time I get a call on that number. If they leave a message, google transcribes it and sends it to me as an email. If it's a junk call, they just hang up without leaving a message.

Tip: I transferred my landline to a mobile phone number first (required) for about 2 days (metroPCS was cheapest) and then transferred it to google voice. Now I have a free google voice phone for a looooong time. I don't check this board often, Best of luck!
