Can I get an 800 number and just forward it to Skype?

You can forward any number you get from us to any local number you want including a skype number. You can also transfer any number you get from us to any phone company you want. Actually you have to transfer it to another company, that’s kind of the concept of our service. We help you get the best number and then allow you to transfer it to whoever is best for you for the ongoing service.

We’re kind of like the GoDaddy of the phone number business. I should probably also point out that you don’t have to use the same company that provides the local number to get the calls to your local number. So you don’t need to use Skype to get the calls to a skype phone number. I say that because they are probably pretty dumb about toll free service.

    So if I buy a toll free number from you I still have to transfer it to another service even if I link it to my Skype number?

      You still have to pick someone for the forwarding service. I wrote a post more specifically about customers that sometimes think that if it’s a voip service there’s no cost per minute to point a toll free number there. I’m not sure if that’s why you were asking or not, but that might help.

      The thing though is that you can pick anyone you want. You’re not just stuck with the company that you got the toll free number from just because in their fine print, they said that they own your number. That means you can pick whoever is the best and if you find out their customer service is all done through some third world hut that hardly speaks english, (I won’t say their name) then you can transfer it away to someone better at any time.

        I've had some pretty good things to say about you and your whole company in the past. I don't want to sound like a broken record, though, so I'll let my actions speak this time...

        We set up computer networks for small to mid-sized businesses. A potential new client has a mostly Macintosh environment. They called us and we went out to do an evaluation of their network. We then sent them a bid. I know they were getting bids from other companies, and I felt we were maybe not in
        the running for their business (we primarily work with Microsoft networks but also do Macintosh based networks). The company they said they may go with was an all Macintosh service company. I told them to give me a call at 1-800-MACINTOSH when they decide either way. She seemed very surprised that that was our number. That was yesterday, today she called and wants to work with us!!!!! I don't know if the number gave us some credibility, but it
        sure didn't hurt.

        As a past customer twice, I'm very impressed with this area of service that you provide which is second-to-none! I waited 1 week with my carrier to pull these numbers but found that you offered this service too so I went for it, paid the nominal fee and had my number ringing to my cell in seconds. Now that is SERVICE!

        Thank you Bill!
