I’m already experimenting with Flynumber as a non-personal number for an activity/club I work with. Now I’m looking at Flynumber as a possibility for eliminating my landline. I am in Washington state, USA. I see that my landline (206-362-xxxx) is available for porting. I want to make sure I understand the rest of the process.
I know that the resulting phone service will rely on my broadband internet connection. No problem there.
I think I understand that I will need to add a box to my home network – something like the Cisco SPA112. Please confirm.
Once the box is in place, I’ll need to plug it in to the phone wires in my house. I’m looking at (and appreciate the clarity of) the article at http://www.voipmyhouse.com/ – the actions described there are well within my capabilities.
Now here’s where I’m fuzzy and would appreciate clarification. If I port my existing landline number to Flynumber to be an (incoming) DID, do I also need to subscribe to a VOIP provider? Or should I be able to configure the box to be an SIP device that I could configure under a “Person” module in the PBXww panel?
I understand that if I don’t go through a VOIP provider, there are no options for E911 services.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
