Free or low-cost inter-NPA forwarding?

A listener-supported radio broadcast station has a telecom problem. Their local (212) pledge call-in number (for on-air fund drives) was just outsourced to an outfit in nearby (516), but they'd like to continue using their well-known (212) pledge call-in number if feasible.

What free or low-cost options exist for forwarding thousands of listener calls without incurring per-call charges, or for inexpensively porting the (212) number to the nearby (516) location?

Thanks in advance,

-bernieS

1- you could do *whatever to forward the number.

2- you can call into the business office and they can place a remote call forward at the CO which will redirect the #. Check with them about charges and how it's covered on the current call plan.

3- the calls can also be forwarded from the PBX but that would prob be the most expensive option depending on call plan

Port the 212 number to Google Voice
Set up GV to ring the 516 number (or any other number desired when it changes again).

Thanks for all your replies. Because this (212) number will be used for on-air fundraising, any solution will require up to ten (10) simultaneous calls to be forwarded to the (516) number's call center.
