any info appreciated from anyone
It'd probably be easier to just get a free 719 number from Google Voice (google.com/voice), you can set that up to forward calls to any phone number(s) you'd like.

RE: Getting a 719 number. I just bought a second Tracfone and when setting up your number all you do is put in a COS zip code and you will be assigned a 719 number. For right now I use this on my resumes. I don't have a landline, so my first Tracfone is for my Az number and one used for personal reasons unrelated to job hunting. Good luck.

Default finally got the number

I followd the advice of a couple of you posters and did get a google ph. number for colorado. Although when dialed [the col number] it gives a voice ad that it is a google number. That may not be good. It may raise a red flag to an employer. Maybe there is a way to get rid of that, but i haven't researched it yet. If anyone knows how toget rid of that voice ad, feel free to post.
thanks
redbone

Best bet is to get a prepaid cellphone through Verizon Wireless or someone like that-- you can reactivate old cell phones, and you can choose a rate where you only pay the days you use it. When you call customer service or go into a store to activate it, just tell them you're moving to Colorado Springs, CO (they'll ask you for a zip code where you'll be using the phone-- just pick any one within the city) and you need a local phone number. You still keep your actual billing address on file with their system, but no one will ever know it. But truthfully, you're wasting your time worrying about the cell phone number-- having a real, local address (NOT a PO Box) is much more important. Even with a local address and phone number, you'll still have the cards stacked up against you by not having any local education/employment history listed on your resume.

Vegaspilgram has a point, just remember nothing is impossible just a little more challanging. Bring talent, faith and determination and the rest works itself out.
