We moved this past fall, only 8 miles. AT&T Would not allow us to take the number that we had had for 46 years with us.

We stumbled into a Verizon plan.
You buy a base unit that you plug your land line phones into, and it uses the cell system which basically turns your land line phones into cell phones, and there are no long distance charges.
I think it cost us about $80 to begin with and $20 a month. It's a 2 year plan and there is a buy out fee to get out of it in less than the 2 years.

You can keep your old number. And take your base unit with you any where you want to go and it will work where ever it can receive a cell tower signal.
It plugs into 120 volts and has a battery back-up.

Yep, we did this too. Saving over $20 a month and not paying separate long distance charge. I think they call it Home Connect or something like that. Has worked flawlessly. One upside (or downside, depending on your point of view) is no listing in the local directory since the home number is essentially a cell phone now. You also get caller ID and voice mail, the voice mail recorder we already had still works too. If you are on a call it rolls to voice mail. Since we already had a Verizon account it's the same voice mail password. I think they said about 50 hrs. of battery backup on stand by, of course less if you are talking on it. It's a win!
