We tested lots of services that can help you get the target, but the combination that we found best is using iPkall (US based VOIP compatible number provider) , Tpad (VOIP service), Nimbuzz (VOIP client). Now as i said you can find lots of other services that are doing same as the above listed services, but personally i found these best and working 100%. Still providing you the list of VOIP services, so that you don't have to search for them in any case.

3. The next thing is getting the software, the VOIP client, that you are going to use to receive the calls coming to your number. Here, in case you want the freedom of receiving your call on your cell phone (it should be a gprs enabled handset), i would recommend you to download Nimbuzz for your phone by visiting at http://m.nimbuzz.com from your mobile, which have all the required functions that you would require ahead. Nimbuzz do have windows/mac client which you can use to receive calls on your laptop. You can visit http://www.nimbuzz.com to get them. Besides that as i said above you can download Tpad softphone as well.
