I've searched high and low on these boards to no avail. It seems that this very question has been posed before but nobody has the answer. I even emailed the Skype support team and received no response. Customer service = non-existent!
I have a UK online number with my Skype account, and I have set up forwarding to my mobile phone, however the delay in which it takes my mobile phone to actually ring is around 10 seconds. This is completely unacceptable and makes the services pointless.
I have tried changing the call forwaring settings in my Skype control panel (reducing the number of seconds until call forwarding) - this didn't work. I have also tried logging out of Skype completely in the hope that this pushes the call forwaring through more quickly - no good!
All I can say is that the call forwarding service from Skype is pointless if this problem is consistent with other Skype users. If this isn't rectified I have no choice but to cancel the service and claim the money back via my Credit Card.
Please can anybody help me?
1) using PC client, set the CF delay to 0 seconds
2) leave the PC client signed in, otherwise a longer default delay is used
on Windows, you enter the number of seconds -- there is no dropdown for this

in step #4 the above FAQ suggests that you can enter the number of seconds before forwarding occurs
unfortunately that does not work. For example I close skype down and call my landline number, it still is 10 rings to divert to my mobile. It does not matter what preferences are set to its always 10 rings. Where do i go to solve this?
Please re-read my earlier post
I am sorry neil, but it simply does not work.
I called up the landline, I can see the call come through on my PC (i..e skype PC server on), it is forwarded after 5 seconds on skype, but there is no impact on the time it takes for the call to come through to my mobile(forwarded number) It is still 10 rings. So I appreciate your patience but the problem has not been solved from my perspective.
