The newest beta version of internet telephony app Skype now includes call forwarding to one or more landlines.
This means power Skype users can make Skype their permanent number
which rings their home phone, mobile phone, office phone OR all three.
Skype for Windows 1.4 is still beta, but is available for download. [via lifehacker]
Skype charges you for this facility, but I’m sure it’s cheaper than an ABC would charge. I remember using the BT call forward service when I ran my small businesses so that people could dial what they thought was an office and it was me on a mobile somewhere in the UK.
I’ve to check to see if Skype has Chester numbers, they didn’t last time I checked.
