    I'm looking for a provider (not sure what exactly I need) to provide a forwarding service.
    I want to pay for a phone number, say XXX-XXX-XXXX and when its called, I want it to forward to my cell phone, YYY-YYY-YYYY.
    What kind of service do I need? Any recommended providers for this service?

    Hey Dougy,
    Fellow WHT-ers recommend kall8, ringcentral etc.
    Pay about $2/mo for the number and which provider to go with depend on how much you can afford for the incoming per min rate..

    You could get a GrandCentral (http://grandcentral.com/) account.

    GrandCentral is not seems to be opening new accounts, or may be I am missing something.
    Dougy For a regular phone number that supports call forwarding too check this one http://www.magicjack.com, for around $40 (first time) then $20 a year you get a regular phone number to make unlimited calls to any USA & Canada number (no per minute or monthly expenses), call waiting, call forwarding, three way call, voice mail and few more bells & whistles.
    Some people known to me are using it for quite a long time and I started using it a month back, for me, from India over 384 Kbps DSL while this DSL is shared between 5 PCs doing upload/download, surfing etc, its working quite well, voice quality is clear and without any disruption, though I am not using their call forwarding feature.

    All I want is a number I can give people that they can call that will end up at my cell without actually giving them my cell number. I won't ever be making outgoing calls with the number.

    I don't like any of the "say your name" garbage.. I just want it to ring like a normal phone.

    I don't like any of the "say your name" garbage..That's only an option. I just want it to ring like a normal phone.That's what it do (if you set it up that way). It's pretty flexible.
    All I want is a number I can give people that they can call that will end up at my cell without actually giving them my cell number. I won't ever be making outgoing calls with the number.That's what GrandCentral was built for.

    Using MagicJack you can do that and still it will be cheaper than any other provider $20 a year and no other charge (or $51 something for 5 years). You will have to use the USB device once to activate the services then just unplug it and store it in a closet.
