Currently, i am with aaNet (ADSL 512K) plan with Telstra home budget plan.
I want to switch to IncPhoneA** plan. My question is, will i be able to keep my existing Telstra number? Also, who will be my provider of my landline after i switch to Exetel?

Yes. If for some reason your number is not "portable" from Telstra to Exetel, the application will simply be rejected and your current setup will not be affected.

Exetel. They act as a reseller of Optus land lines and ADSL2+ services, but the phone bills / line rental / ADSL2+ charges are all paid directly to Exetel and they will act as a liaison between you and Optus if the need arises.
