To get a good number, take whatever they give you at the store when you switch. The store only is able to pull up about three numbers for you to choose from.
After you leave, call 611 from your phone and tell the person that you just signed up and want a better number. They should be helpful in finding you a good one and offering you a number of alternatives. If they're not very helpful, just hang up and dial 611 again and you will get a different person that will be more helpful. Try this a few times if necessary.
I did this and got a very helpful person on the first try. She found me a great number. Everybody now asks me, "how did you get such a good number"?
