Sign up for a 800# and they can ring it directly to your cell phone. THen you only give thta number out. Mine is pretty elaborate and can receive faxes, VM, auto attendant, routing calls and much more for $25 month.
I'm with GN. I use Ring Central. I have an 800 number and a fax number, and some other stuff I don't actually use yet. You set everything up, including voicemail and answering options for your "hours of business" using Ring Central, and then just have the calls transferred to whatever number you want to use. Mine come to my cell phone, so I can always answer, and as with most cells, you can do a different ring tone for that number so that you automatically know when your business line is ringing.
We have Vonage and love it. We forward it to my cell phone and I am able to answer even when we are out of town. We have picked up business while on vacation. One drawback is if you are out of town and need to call the customer back they now have your cell number. We had one whacko customer that once she got the cell number instead of calling the business number she would text me. Then she would get pissed if I didn't respond back right away. If I am busy I won't answer text messages because they are usually from friends or family and don't have time for it. If the business phone rings then I will answer. A double edge sword I guess.
I have Line 2 on my iPhone. It has voicemail, texting, and can be forwarded to another number. This way with the 4 or 4s you can use your personal phone as normal and just have your business line in the background. Cost is 9.95 a month.

I use Google Voice and love it. You can set it up so calls go straight to voice mail during "closed" hours (6p - 9a). You have the option to have it ring on your phone as either the caller's number or your Google Voice number. I feel it is the best as it is free and with me 100% of the time. I've also never had any issues.
