Skype is a a free online communication tool and it allows businesses to cut costs by eliminating their standard landline phone service. One of the advantages of Skype is the ability to create an Online Number. An Online Number is best described as a telephone number with a flexible location. For example, if you have a client in the United Kingdom, you can set your Online Number local to that country so your client does not incur long-distance charges for calling you. When using Skype, calling an Online Number works the same as calling a landline or mobile phone.
Click "Call Phones" on the left side of the screen.
Click the numbers on the dial pad to enter the Online Number. Alternatively, you can use the number keys on your keyboard to enter the number.
Click the green icon of a telephone at the bottom of the dial pad to call the Online Number.
When you have finished the call, click "End Call" to hang up.
