For users who require an Online Number in countries where that product is not available there is, depending upon individual requirements, a workable alternative involving Skype To Go numbers.
This workaround would be relevant in the following countries:
Here's an example of how it works:
John lives in Toronto, Canada, but recently moved to Australia where he started his new job. Unfortunately there are no Canadian Online Numbers but he still wants his contacts to reach him at local rates from their phones. The solution: John sets up a Skype To Go number with a Toronto area code. He then can register up to a maximum of 20 phone numbers of contacts in Toronto who want to call him abroad (registration is required). Now, when his contacts call the Skype To Go number he set up for them, they get straight through to him on his Skype.
In order to set up a Skype To Go number you either need Skype Credit or a Subscription.
Here’s what you need to do (using Canada as an example):
If you have Skype Credit or a Subscriptions, sign in to your account and go to the Skype To Go set up
If you want more contacts to call you (maximum 20) you will need to register
their phones and give them the same number to call.
