Have you heard about GrandCentral? It's a service now owned by Google that will allow you to have a free number that you can use for all your numbers. Once you are assigned a number, you would plug in a number that you want it to call. This is the number that you would give to your friends, co-workers, bill collectors etc. You can then choose the option of having each called screened(meaning the caller will have to announce their name) and choose to accept the call or reject. Or you can decide not to screen it but you can still choose to accept or reject it but the caller wont know you have screened the call. They even have options where you can decide when to take calls from certain people(like set hours) or you can choose to always have a call forwarded to voice mail or even sneakier play a disconnected option to make the caller think your number has been disconnected. Once you get a number from GrandCentral, it's your number for life. They have different ring choices you can choose from and all types of gadgets to play around with. You can even call a person back with your GrandCentral number. I have been using it for over a month now and I love it!
Only catch is right now it is by invitation only. If you don't receive an invite you can also go to the site and be added to a waiting list or just google grandcentral invites to see if anyone have any to spare.
I am willing to give one away to a random person that person that leaves me a comment. Each user is only allowed 10 so I am only giving one away today. I might decide to do it again down the road. So if you're interested or have any feed back leave me a comment.
Maybe we can develop an idea to post about it and exchange links back to the person you got it from. Hmmm. :)
Thanks Digital Nomad for the link.
