Equivalent to Rogers One Number

Hello,

 

  Are there any plans to implement an equivalent feature to Rogers One Number:

 

www.rogersonenumber.ca

 

  My specific application: I often travel overseas for months at a time. While there, I typically pick up a local pre-paid cell phone for day-to-day use and leave my Telus phone off to avoid roaming. To keep in touch with Canada, right now I use Skype or Google Voice to periodically call into my Telus voicemail for messages, and to return calls.

 

  Rogers One Number would let me do this without incurring long-distance Google Voice charges, with the added advantages of outgoing calls having my correct caller ID, and being able to send/receive text messages. If Telus doesn't have an equivalent feature in the works, I will very likely consider switching to Rogers before my next trip.

This is a great idea. I'm currently with Rogers and am looking to switch to Telus. As much as I dislike Rogers' service, the Rogers One Number software is a huge added value and is making the decision to switch that much more difficult.
