Posted:Fri 28 of Jan, 2011 (15:32 UTC)
I have a UK phone number that I want to port to a VoIP service - but I have no experience of this so can anyone offer any advice please?

The number is for an old small business that I use to have but is now no longer trading. I want to keep the number simply because so many people have it and I do not want to lose contact.

I believe that there may be a porting and an ongoing cost - but I am not sure what is reasonable. Any recommendations on a reasonable provider?

Once transferred, will I be able to receive incoming calls on my mobile phone - either by setting up a diversion or preferably by using a SIP client on my phone which uses my data allowance?

Any information at all will be greatly appreciated.
