    You can try Google Voice (which is free) - not sure if it will forward to a European number, but you can have them leave a voice mail. There are also paid services like RingCentral that offer US numbers.

    also if you have iphone you can get it tru app.
    i use this app named text now for free they give you sms/txt US number..but if u want to call you have to pay like 2-3 bucks calling option.
    i had girl in USA and this was our cheapest form of communication...only thing is..you have to be connected on internet..3g or wifi.
    PS. person who is calling you from US cant know if its app or real phone..you get US area code too...and cost them same like inside USA call or txt

    Cheers

    You can also check out phone.com

    It is about $8/mo for a local number or $20/mo for a 1-800 number and you can forward the calls anywhere in the world. Includes about 5hrs of talk time.

    Check http://www.globalsimcard.co.uk/index.php they offer a plan with 2 numbers, 1 UK and 2nd US. Both can be forwarded to your number, and as far as I know it costs you nothing to receive calls (apart from small yearly fee for the SIM).

    I think Skype offers this kind of service... Check their 'Skype Number' service :)

    I would personally use a voip provider and receive the calls on a sip phone (hard or software). This only costs you a fee for the number and receiving calls is free. If you need to forward it to a real phone number in europe it might get expensive unless you get complicated and do the actual forwarding in your own country via an asterisk setup

    With Ether, not only can you get a free US phone number, but you can actually get paid for the calls you get:
