How to cancel your land line and keep your old phone number
Do you still pay for a land line even though you have a mobile phone? If so, maybe you’ve toyed with the of getting rid of your land line. You’d save money, which is great, but it’s not quite that simple. You’ve had your home phone number for years…decades even. Maybe it’s hard to imagine giving it up. Everybody has your number, it’s in numerous directories, your family knows it by heart, and maybe you even feel attached to it. Well, guess what? There’s a new online service that allows you to cancel your land line but keep your old phone number and use it on your mobile phone.
With over 75 combined years of management experience in the telecom industry, W. Jeff Swenson and his team have founded OurOldNumber.com (OON), a new business that offers land line telephone users a means to lower their costs, make more efficient use of their communications services and, most importantly, keep their old telephone number. OurOldNumber will literally transform your old home phone number into a mobile phone number. When someone calls your home phone number they will reach you wherever you are because the call will be automatically routed to your mobile phone. And not just your mobile phone either — with up to 9 selections available for your household, callers can choose who they want speak to and the call is routed to that person’s mobile phone. If a call is missed, a voicemail is sent to that person’s email.
This is a month-to-month, no contract, cloud-based service. No equipment and no internet connection is required. You sign up by going to OurOldNumber.com. The setup process is designed to be quick and hassle-free with a small, one-time setup fee. You should be ready to go in minutes. You then cancel your landline service but you will still own your home telephone number and there’s no need to make any changes to your cell phone plan. You will manage your account online using either your computer or mobile device to view invoices, change routing, time of day options, and greetings. Monthly billings and payments are fully automated.
Mr. Swenson, Founder and Managing Director of OON, estimates that customers will be saving $240-$480 a year on average. Another perk to using this service is that it will effectively block unwanted telemarketing calls since “robo” calls can’t make a selection from your menu and live telemarketers won’t know who to choose.
