reactivate my mother-in-laws land line phone

my mother-in-laws son decided to do away with her land line and get her a cell phone.  She never was comfortable the change and has difficulty using the cell phone.  She has medical issues, not severe enough to call 911, but she may need to get in touch with my husband or another family member.  Please let us know what steps are necessary to have her landline restored with possibly the same phone number.  Thank you for your help

You can't reactivate a close account you have to open a new account and you won't be able to get her old number back.

The only way to get the old number back is if it was ported to her cell phone and she can port it back.
