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.

        The simplicity and speed of your service is amazing! The intended end-carrier told me that the number I wanted was unavailable (according to an FCC database). I hung up and registered the number here and it was active within 60 seconds! Very impressive. Thanks!

        I had been going back and forth with my phone company for 2 months to get a toll free number with no success. I came to your site and within less than 5 minutes I got my toll free number connected and routed to my regular phone number and ringing. Thanks for such a good service.

        What an outstanding service! I've never much liked the major phone companies with their attitudes and sense of being the only game in town. Leave it to somebody like Mr. Quimby to be smart and nimble and fill a market need. You deserve all the rewards that come with your site's success!

        This is a pretty darned amazing service. I can’t believe how fast it was activated. I’ve been frustrated looking for a way to get a decent vanity number on and off for over a year. This really works!

        A friend of mine recommended Bill's service, to me in 2006.
        I looked in to it and it was the easiest, most cost effective way to get a toll free vanity number out there.

        I know that having a toll free vanity number is going to make things easier for family, friends and customers to reach our business, and that will help make us more successful.

        Bill helped me set things up and walked me through the process of getting the number, transferring it to another company within their grace period and I've been extremely happy with their service.

        When I needed a second toll free number for the phone in our business office in 2008, I didn't hesitate to go right to Bill Quimby and

        You should too. It's quite simply an awesome service and excellent business.

        Yes, it was very helpful. I ended up getting my number with you and using FreedomVoice.

        Many thanks, I'll recommend you to anyone that asks where to get numbers.

        PS. The guy at FreedomVoice said, "Wow, how did you get such a good vanity number!!"
