Re: Use Skype without Internet connection

Thanks for your reply,

 

I live in Sweden now but im traveling to Australia soon for a longer period of time. Can I then get a Swedish Skype phone number witch I forward to a my Australian Sim card? Or is it only possible to forward in the country you have the Skype number? 


What should I order and what would the costs be? If it´s possible.

 

thanks

rasmus

Yes, you can buy a Swedish Online Number and have calls forwarded to any phone in the world if you are not online to take the call on Skype.

 

For costs on Online Numbers go to:

For call forwarding you need to first buy some Skype Credit:

And then set up call forwarding to your Australian mobile:
