249 was added in 2011 and should work just fine, people in your area will not be paying long distance. There are also no more dropped calls than any other area code.

Availability of 705 depends on if there is an open slot for a new number (if someone else cancels their number it will eventually become available again)... Bell, Telus and Koodo all draw from the same pool so you might run into the same problem in getting a number.

So you weren't lied to :) Hope that explains it a little better for you....
