This may only apply to New York State*, but you don’t really have to select a PIC** at all. Just cancel your account with your current carrier and use those 10-10 numbers from now on. Most(all?) of them accept calls directly from the access tandem or regional host, whichever. If you don’t spend more than US$10 a month now, it’s probably not worth it to have a regular service contract. You’re not using it, why pay for it?
In New York, Verizon (nee Bell Atlantic, nee NYNEX) has the legal ability to provide LD service, and offers package deals if you take both local and LD from them. I don’t know if your local carrier can do that or not, but it’s another thing you could check.
[sub]*I don’t know what the network structure looks like in your state, and I certainly don’t know if you need a regional toll provider, but your LEC should offer that sort of service.
