Forwarding an old mobile number - what's the cheapest way?

Answered

We have acquired a business which included the old owners mobile number / SIM.  It doesn't get many calls but we also don't want to loose any customers.  Whats the cheapest way to keep the number and forward it to either my mobile or my business partners? 

We won't make any outbound calls on the number.  We also have an answering service, so it could easily just be directed there, that's a standard landline number.

Re: Forwarding an old mobile number - what's the cheapest way?

You will get charged for each diverted call, so it's really going to depend on how many it gets.
You could put it on a cheap prepaid plan, but then you just need to make sure that it is going to have credit available. Which one you choose is going to depend on the number of calls diverted.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
