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.

        In the world of 8** numbers, it is often difficult to figure out where to even start. Should I call my own telephone company, should I call some other services, or should I search the internet to find multiple companies that provide some answers? Well, I have to admit that through the search of the internet I found your site, clicked a few numbers and the results were impeccable! The thoroughness of the site made it easy for me to navigate in and easy for me to see what exactly the service is all about.
        Then when you introduced the 800 Watch program, I was even more amazed at what you and your company provided as far as results. The list of different combinations of numbers added more value than the 50$ I spent on activated the number (which was a number from one of your many suggestions), and made the $50 seem minute.

        My new number was activated in a matter of minutes and I am a very satisfied customer. Just starting my business, and a great 888 number was a key to success and your company provided one of the main keys. 888-WHY-BRAND will become part of the tag line as well! That alone is worth more than $50, and therefore, I am a very satisfied customer.

        I wanted to say how easy to use the tollfreenumbers web site was. I looked at many others but they were the best. I called and spoke to a customer service person and they were helpful and did not rush me at all. I got the perfect phone number for my books business 1-888-4SavonBooks. I would have never created this without tollfreenumbers.

        Bill, I just want to say that I appreciate your service. Helping me navigate through the mire of 8** numbers to find just what I was looking for and then making it so easy to get that number was a wonderful thing.
        Without your service, I would still be looking...

        The after sales support was friendly and very responsive. I wish all my suppliers were so easy to deal with.

        We searched for hours and it seemed like everything was taken. We couldn't find anything that worked for our business but you came up with some amazing "1-800" options. We love the one you got us, 1-800 TRIM KING and have had a lot of customers compliment us on it. I would recommend you to anyone!
