Ring2Skype is a new free service that allows you to receive phone calls on your Skype from the phone network! Once you sign up, you will get a phone number and a private extension. All calls to your extension ring at your Skype.
RingToSkype is indeed a free service and a great one. I will explain in short how it works.
First, you need to sign up using your existing Skype user name and create at the same time a number. You can pick any country from the drop down list. You will be given a phone number followede by an extension.
Users can sign up for more than one number.
Now, let’s say a friend of yours needs to reach you, but he or she doesn’t want to pay for the call. You can give him/her your RingToSkype number and they will be able to call you, from a land-line or a mobile – free of charge – to your Skype account.
Note: Your online number is a regular phone number so any charges that might regularly occur from calling a number in that location still apply.
This method is convenient if you have lots of friends overseas or if you own a small business and want to cut down on expenses for international calls.
Of course, if you don’t have a call forward set up for Skype, you will have to be around your computer to be able to pick up the call.
I tested this service and it works perfect for me.
The information on RingToSkype.com is a bit confusing and out of place.
