Hi Carl, here are a few that you can check out:
The above are paid services with which you can have many options like local numbers, toll-free numbers, vanity numbers, auto-attendant. What they offer are full business solutions.
The cheapest service that I know of with which you can get a number, voicemail sent to email, and the ability to call out via VoIP is magictalk. It's $19.95 a year to get a DID number and make unlimited calls to continental US and Canada.
Since I personally do not need the service options that those offer, I have a free virtual number from ipkall (they give you Washington state numbers) and use them with my free callcentric account. Voicemail gets sent to me via email as an attachment. When I need to call out I use google voice. When free google voice call outs are no longer available, I will probably use magictalk, unless something better will be available by then.
