Hi Celine,
You can receive calls on your Whistlephone number, but I don't know if you can 
chane it. I got my number in the 724 area. Maybe you can write to their 
customer support and ask them if you can change your number.
Best regards,

Hi Christian,

can we use regular phone to use Whistle Phone service? One time I created an 
account with them, and they gave me a number which is not my area code. I 
don't know how to change the number so that I don't have to pay for long 
distance. So far I haven't tried to call with that number. Any ideas?

Hi Stevie,
I am using their service with my Cisco 7960 phone so you should have no 
trouble with it.
Just for your info, use your your asociated phone number you get from them 
as the username in your ATA box.
Good luck!
