This many not end up being a webapp question but right now it seems to me that the answer will most likely me a webapp of some sort.

There are a number of VOIP/SIP/Fax services that I'd like to try out but they don't have any local NH (603) numbers. Most of them do allow porting of numbers. Where can I buy a phone number that I can have ported in? I'm looking for just the phone number, not the voice service to go with it (most VOIP providers don't actually sell you the number anyway, they just lease it to you so you can't port it out).

Any reason why you don't want to buy a line from the local telco? –  dsolimano Nov 9 '10 at 19:13
Bcause I want a number to use with one of the many web based phone services that allow you to port numbers in (but as I said before don't have my area code). If I bought a number from my local telco, they'd charge me to come out and run a line to my house, just for me to cancel the service and take my number onto the web. There has to be a more direct way to buy a number than buying a land line then porting out. –  matt Nov 9 '10 at 22:40

Please try Google Voice now that it's public www.google.com/voice. You are likely to find your desired 603 area code when you search for a Google provided number. It's free and worth a shot.

That is where I started. No 603 numbers and there hasn't been any since Google bought GrandCentral –  matt Nov 9 '10 at 18:25
