Google Voice replacement
I have always used google voice to get a local number for business purposes. However, that is not an option here in USVI. Does anyone have any suggestions for an alternative service that will let people call a local number and forward the call to your current (non-local) phone?
Thank for the help!
I don't specifically need google voice. I'm just hoping for a service that let's folks call a local number without having to change my own personal number. I've already run into some not wanting to call b/c of my area code. With a service you avoid a whole other phone bill and all the business contacts you've made in other place can still reach you at the number they have. Just asking what other folks use b/c you all who've lived here and done business longer probably know. I've got plenty online but this doesn't seem to be the kind of culture that schedules and such online....please tell me if I'm wrong.
AT&T's Wireless Home Phone (WHP) system gives you a 340 number with unlimited nationwide calling and call-forwarding (and other features) for $20/month + tax, so people could call a 340 number which forwards to your other number. The WHP system has a cellular base station, so you can take it wherever your home is, as long as you have a cell signal. I assume you can bring it stateside too.
