Choosing a local phone number

I live in a state where our area code covers 80% of the state.   If I call another city on the other side of the state it is a long distance phone call.  Is there a way to chose a local phone number to my city so my customers do not have to make a long distance phone call from the same city?

Re: Choosing a local phone number

Hi there @miketorg,

I checked in with our Smartline team and they said that the SmartLine number search is currently only at the area code (NPA) level. We'll offer the City/area (NPA-NXX) number selection soon. Are you looking for a particular NPA-NXX code? Let me know. Thanks!

Hi @Kaina,

Thanks for the question. Unfortunately, city/area selection is not yet available (also known as NPA). Until then, when searching for a number you'll be given 9 options, click the "Search Again" button to bring up different numbers available in your desired area code until you find the perfect number for you.

Thanks

Re: Choosing a local phone number

Thanks for the reply. I saw a lot of good ones but I ended up finding a site that lets you buy a vanity number (specific numbers or letters) and I was able to buy and park the perfect number! I just started the porting process with GoDaddy to transfer the number here. Thank goodness I found a workaround (for only $2 + $5 activation with no cancellation) but it would be great to be able to look up numbers that specifically straight from here.
