I've been paying two phone bills for eight months trying to unravel my old phone number from everything on my business letterhead and stuff, move my voice mail, bla bla bla. I'm finally there, ditching the old phone number and now only giving out my phone.com voice mail number.

I will soon have a website so anyone that googles me can send me a message, I'm not as concerned that people from the past won't be able to find me.

Yep then that's it. I have a flip phone but the only people with that number are my wife and the two folks at the front desk at work, nobody else gets it. Otherwise nobody knows that the number I give out is vm only.

I have a PinePhone64 that I can use for this or that but I need to ditch my carrier account and switch to prepaid, and even then I don't think I'll use it much. Like I really need to "do banking" in line at Panda.

I'm currently using Proton email, however I think I read on here recently that it wasn't as private or secure as it's purported to be. What email services would you recommend?
