Porting home phone number to el cheapo

If I could - I would port my home phone number to Google Voice.  But as that never came about I was trying to think of the very least costly solution to let me receive calls at that number.  I would need a carrier who only forwarded the calls to say google voice and from there I could have the calls go to cell phones or ring my computer or whatever.  Who would be the least expensive party in the world to whom I could transfer my home phone number.  The only ability they would need to have would be the ability to forward all calls.

I use Google voice for my home phone and love it.   100% free (usage) nationwide US.    I need to call Brazil regularly and that's 2 cents a minute.  

I can't speak about an alternative but wonder about what it says about porting to Google on this page (looks doable),

When i setup my home phone with Google i didn't need to port a number, i just picked out one they had available. I picked out a number that is ridiculously easy to remember and convey.

I hear ya.  I really like the google service and got a cool number too.  :-)  The issue is I've had this home phone number now going on 20 years!  So I'm bound to miss some calls as it's on so many forms and electronic rolodex and so on.  That's why I'd love to get call my calls over to google voice via that number.

Well that's creative.  Ha!
I haven't used that method, but looks good.   Good luck with it, and if you have any problems post again and we'll work through it.
