VOIP and your own number
These guys Lingo Broadband Phone Service Powered by Primus advertise that you can keep your phone number. I wonder how they do that? Gunna review it.

Maybe I am missing your point here....but the voip providers like lingo, vonage, etc., call all "port" your number from your landline carrier (Q, SBC, etc.). It takes awhile, like 2-3 weeks, but does work. In the meantime, they will assign you a temporary number from their bank of numbers so you can use the service.
ps - It sure isn't easy to post to your blog if you use IE 6.0

As with everything, there's a fee, and it's not even usage based -- ~$0.50 tax per phone line per month, whether or not you use LNP.
