[BC] Ghost line

I have cable with Shaw, phone and internet with Telus. Shaw called and offered all 3 for $30/month for a year. So I decided to switch to Shaw. Later a Shaw rep calls back and says they can't switch the phone over because i have a "ghost line". I have had this number for 7 years. Does anybody know what this ghost line is and is there a way to switch and keep the same number?

Thanks

Ok, so i remember a few years ago there were these things called ghost cellphones (not sure if these actually existed or were just rumors being passed around). Which wouldn't be with any provider and would have unlimited calls/texting to pretty much anywhere, only downside was that they would expire and you would need to buy a new one which wasn't cheap and were/are very hard to find.

Now I don't know if a ghost cellphone and a ghost line are the same, but if naming is anything to go by they might be similar.
