europe: use af skype to go

Hello - I have a skype account registred in DK - and a skype to go number.

Also I have set up some Direct Dial numbers in my registred phone.

Can I use these numbers from my mobile on no costs when I travel to Germany or Italy?
Thank you!

Hello,
Unfortunately you can't. The STG program is not available in either Germany or Italy.

Re: europe: use af skype to go

I am in the USA. I will be traveling to Germany, Switzerland and Italy.  I will be purchasing a local German SIM card for my Galaxy S5 phone to have a local German number.

 

Can I 'Forward' my Skype phone to the German mobile number to receive calls placed in the USA to my local USA mobile which I will have forwarded to my Skype number?

 

If so, I assume that my USA based Skype number will incur the long distance rates for such calls which again, would be forwarded to my local Germany mobile phone.

 

Will this work?  I have read and read through the Skype help and forums and it seems no one is asking this particular question.

 

Can you help and elaborate?

 

Thanks,
