How long to activate Skype number in the US?

I ordered a Skype number and received confirmation a couple of hours ago. I see where voice mail is activated but the number has not been activated. Ant ideas?

I've just order an online phone number also, having problems with incoming and outgoing calls. I've have received a couple of voice mail. Not sure what's going on...

Have you tried this.

 

First check that your privacy settings are set to ''Allow calls from anyone''.
Then change them to "Allow SkypeIn calls from Only people from my Contacts List".
Save and wait for 5 minutes.
Log out from your Skype account and log back in.
Change settings back to "Allow calls from Anyone".
Save and wait for 5 minutes.

Log out from your Skype account and log back in.

 

Yes if you are outside the US someone can call you, and you can answer on skype. That being said. If you forward your call to a cell phone you will have to pay with skype credit unless your cell phone is covered by your subscription.
