Sorry, i  had the wrong idea.

Can Ekiga provide me with a local phone # and allow me to call any phone in the US free, as well as allowing all phones to call me on that local #, all from my computer and Ekiga?

Skype is proprietary software, so you are unlikely [1][2] to get help

Perhaps you could consider a free alternative like Ekiga.
