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 am exceptionally glad with the service we received and though you were recommended by the providers of the office phone system we have (PBS) we are surprised that they would not make a better point earlier in the process of having to talk to you as early as possible about a toll free number.

        You were very specific about what we can expect, how we can go about selecting our phone number. The consultation that we received got in to specific techniques in marketing (for our company) etc.

        We are very pleased with the technical facility you have (the program on your website) to select spelling (vanity) phone numbers. It gave us so many ideas that we went from not seeing any opportunities for what our number should spell to almost too many options.

        Any way - you are great and I wish you do great in the future too.

        Thank you for making my voyage into the world of vanity 800's so painless.
        I got the number I wanted within 24 hours and the service transition was seamless. Well worth the fee for the peace of mind.

        So far, Bill and his amazing website have helped me purchase two vanity toll free numbers for my various lines of business. Fast activation, positive proof of ownership, and ease of lookup are just a few of the reasons I won't buy a toll free number from anyone else. Bill is even available by phone if you have questions. That's what I call service.

        Thanks, Bill.
