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.

        Thank You! I am not the person who usually handles this part of the business, so I thought it would be a difficult, bureaucratic mess. Working with made my job easy and fun! Their search engine is fantastic, giving me ideas I had not thought of on my own. My new number is perfect!

        I confess I was initially a little bit apprehensive… However that changed as soon as I spoke to Bill Quimby and his out of this world service! He was able to come up with 800-912-PANAMA… According to other toll-free companies which I had contacted, such a great "vanity" number would have set me back a couple of thousand dollars – had they been able to provide it… but I ended up paying slightly under 60.00 dollars! specializing in assisting American and Canadian investors wishing to invest in PanamaAnd Bill's amazing customer service came at no extra charge: at my request he even suggested an excellent provider. Now, customers from the U.S. and Canada can reach me directly on my cell phone here in Panama!

        Thanks again, Bill, and keep up the great work!

        Bill made finding my toll free number so effortless. Executing the order was just as smooth and professional. I called with a few questions that were answered promptly and next thing I knew I had my own toll free number with a concise booklet full of handy information.

        Thanks, Bill!

        I have truly enjoyed working with you in establishing the toll free number for my business. You were accommodating and personal, and that's the missing pieces in today's business affairs. Thank you for walking me through each step, with patience...another quality that I appreciated. I will refer you highly to others I meet along the way. And I must say, the most impressive act of the day was answering my call in your car at the end of your day. That's service that most cannot compete with.

        Excellent Number again. Your lookup tool is far more updated than any other I've seen. Other sites will indicate a number is not free while yours has it ripe for the picking. Keep up the good work.
