You need to provide more info about your setup to get exact help. That said, all my home and business line calls come to my Sprint phones with no problems. They have for years.
If you have phone services through your cable provider (specifically Cablevision for the following set up advice), it's pretty easy.
From your cable service phone/voice settings, select the "Find Me" ring option. It will allow you to input your mobile or any other number. Set your number. Your phone will now ring any time on both your home/business and your mobile phone. Voicemails will be left on your home/business voicemail. I don't have a Google Voice number, but I've heard from others this has no impact.
The other option is actually call forwarding. Using this option, your mobile phone will be the only phone that rings/receives the calls. Voicemails will be left only on your mobile number. I don't care for this option because it's really there when you don't want the calls to go to the home/business at all.
If you have different voicemail messages for your home/business and mobile numbers, people also get the answer message from your home/business line using option 1 when they call that number.
I think both Find Me and Call Forward through my service provider also give me caller ID info since that's a part of my plan.
If you have a traditional landline, sorry I can't help you. Haven't had one of those for almost 10 years now.
