    I am not a member so i cant comment on the cost, but the one main problem I see with it is that it seems you are locked into that phone number forever. What I mean is...lets say you grow your business using that phone number and in 5 years you don't want to pay for the service. What happens? You get rid of it, but your biggest competitor can now pay real green and reap the benefits of your previous marketing. Make sense?

    Don't do it. I took over a company that had this number. Very expensive and no worth. Trust me unless you want to throw away money don't do it. You still have to advertise whether you use them or not. Why pay to advertise someone else's business.... Good Luck just remember DON'T DO IT... I have many reasons but don't have time to discuss right now.
