What is your area code and prefix? Let's see if we can come up with a solution before throwing money at the telco.

Here is a listof local prefixes from your 236 NPA in Grand Island, NE. It is from the website localcallingguide.com:

224 231 233 234 236 237 238 240 293 338 440 455 627 698 708 865

I found numbers available through GV in the 646 NPA that are also in Grand Island - but they do not show up on the above list so they may not be local. However, they are all in the same LATA so they may be just not on the chart yet. The 646 numbers are owned by Level 3 Communications. Maybe you could check with your local telco and find out if they have better information on 308 646-XXXX numbers. If one of these would work, there are a bunch you could choose from for the $10 change fee. Let us know your results! :cool:

My current ooma number is a 308-646-XXX number, and it requires long distance dialing here in town if someone wants to call us on their land line. It'd be much simpler if everyone dumped their land lines!!!

I looked at every GV number available for area code 308 and none of them will work if people in our town (Kearney) want to call us on their land lines and not dial 1 and the area code first.

I guess I just have to resign myself to keeping the land line for inbound calls and use ooma for outgoing long distance.

Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone!
