Glenn Vassallo

I just got my SkypeIn number because I wanted to have a "landline" number that people can call me on. I just started a small business and was exclusively using a mobile number, now with SkypeIn my customers (and friends) can choose to call my new "landline" number. The beauty of this number is that it follows me where ever I happen to be. The other reason I got the SkypeIn number is for testing purposes, I want to see if you can successfully use this technology in a business situatiom with out ever having to get a landline set up.

Phillip Molly Malone

Isn't there a way of using the Skype-in to then forward to another number using Skype? Sort of a follow me situation?
Also is a good option for Audio comments from Aussies (although probably wouldn't want to be the only thing that you use).

But the other option would be for you to get rid of your home phone and go Skype only. Aren't there portbably Skype phones?

Just a thought.


I Google'd the conversion rate, and The Mighty Monolith tells me 30euro is about AU$50 (but you know, I didn't actually take it any further to verify that, lazy git that I am)


Tom Morris

It's a darn sight cheaper than having a landline. Now if we can just get it so you can have DSL without having a home phone line, which thanks to our monopolistic telephone companies here in Blighty is pretty much impossible.


Molly asks -- "Isn't there a way of using the Skype-in to then forward to another number using Skype? Sort of a follow me situation? " -- yes, there is Call Forwarding in SkypeIn. You can forward incoming calls either to another Skype Name or to a phone number.
