Online Toll Free Number for USA

Highlighted
Novel Adventurer

Hi, I am trying to buy a Online Number for US. I want a Toll Free Number.

 

Is it possible to buy toll free numbers for the US as Skype Online Numbers?

 

If so, when I go to choose number, the system forces me to chooses a state.

 

Can anyone advise or help.

No answers from anyone on Skype Forums or from any Skype staff.

 

I have never considered Skype for my business, and probably never will because it's hard to get support from skype via phone or email. I could not base my businesses telephone system with a company that you can't call. 

 

I use VoIP for my office phones but through a provider where I can get a bit of service.

 

You get Toll Free numbers from others VoIP providers. I am still not sure if you can get it with Skype.

the only way to get support is via emails which can take a day or more for response. If you purchase a subscription or a premium plan they say you get live chat support. I was not happy with the reply from skype when I requested help via email.

Skype does not offer toll-free numbers.  If you want a Skype Online Number in the USA, you can choose from many states and area codes, but not from the toll-free area codes (800, 888, 877, 866, and 855).
If you want to have a toll-free number forward calls to a Skype account, you will have to contact some other provider for toll-free numbers.  Some of them may be able to forward a toll-free number directly to a Skype account name, but most will probably be able to only forward calls to another (non-toll-free) phone number.  In that case, you would still need to purchase a Skype Online Number, and then the toll-free provider would forward calls to that Online Number.

I have a Skype # and a subscription and once upon a time I was able to get support from Skype via email and by phone. Since Microsoft took over, however, anything vaguely resembling support is a thing of the past. Really sad.
