alternative phone number

I'd like to give out a phone number, diferrent than my present cell phone number, for I.T. services which will also go on my business card.  I'd likt to do this in case my present employer should happen to get a hold of my card or my (factitious) phone number on my card.  

I'd like to somehow forward the calls from my factitious phone number over to my cell phone, but how and what products are best/cheapest for this?

I do have a magicjack, but I don't really want my PC at home on all the time.
What are my alternatives?

There are many VOIP service providers who actually gives you a factitious number and all calls to that number are forwarded to any number of your choice. Below is just one of many.
Select the source and destination and check the tariff.

Which of all might be the cheapest (Cost).  I'm not really planning on using the number very much, for right now.

I also have a PDA phone as well.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I have no idea. You have to select on your own, which service provider you want to go with. After all, it's your $$$ at stake. There are tariffs and offers listed on the sites. If reqd, speak with them.

Can someone help find some key words for my number:  800-777-tech for example.

I keep trying to find some, but it seems as though they are all taken already.

Doubt you'll find an 800 number available like that... I got 2FIXPCS in a relatively local area code... though I don't use it much.
