I just got a new VOIP (voice over IP) device to save some money on my phone bill, so I have the opportunity to change to a new phone number or pay an extra fee and transfer my old phone number to the VOIP device.
One of the advantages to this is that I will no longer have to deal with annoying toll free calls from creditors looking for my ex and a cousin of mine, who I don't know how they got my number.
The disadvantage is having to notify everyone I know about the new number. I'd also lose the "305" area code and moving to the secondary "786" number.
What should I do?
1) Keep my old number and deal with the annoying calls?
2) Change numbers and hope the annoying calls don't follow?
