We have a landline and a cell. I'd like to get rid of the landline, but for a number of reasons I'd like to ensure that I get to keep the number pretty much forever, whether it's attached to a landline, cell, Google Voice, whatever... and if in a couple of years I should change my mind again on where it should live, I'm still going to be able to retain it.

I confess utter ignorance on the matter. What are my options these days?

Thanks, all!

Probably the easiest is to get a google voice number, since there is no monthly additional fee. However, you can't direct port landline to google voice, so you need to take an intermediate step of porting your landline to a mobile number.

Google porting landline to google voice and you will get several hits with instructions.
