AOL's 'AIM Phoneline' offers free local phone number

USA Today, 4 May 2006

DULLES, Va. — AOL is close to unveiling a voice-over-Internet service, based on its AIM instant messenger, that would give any AIM user a local phone number for free.

Dubbed AIM Phoneline, the free number would only allow for incoming calls from any phone.

Still, it's the first offer of a free number. To get a number that can be called on Skype costs about $4 a month.
