Hi if you are talking about getting a regular phone number to use along with your sip address that you would receive at linphone website, then you would need a 'direct inward dialing' (DID) number, which is a virtual number.  This virtual number can be used in conjunction with your sip address that you receive from linphone.  By using a DID you allow others to just put in a regular phone number into there landline phone or cell phone and call you on that number, the number then gets transferred automatically to your sip address at linphone and then you are able to answer it.  Not only does a DID allow you to do that but also gives you the ability to let family members and friends in different countries see that you use that countries number based in a particular country, so say you live in England but have family in USA, you can get a DID number for USA, so that families and friends in USA can call that USA number and it will ring in England where your located.

Also to use voip with regular phone without computer check link others provided on mailing list and look up 'ata' which allows you to use voip without a computer.
