Hi! Am on Skype here in UK and need advice! Am going to Norway.

Customer Question

Hi! Am on Skype here in UK and need advice! Am going to Norway. Wanted to get a Skype Mob number for my I phone to use whilst but told by Skype in Norway they dont do this! EEEK! Now this seems ridiculous considering friends in Norway use it on their mobiles etc!

Any ideas...???

What I wanted to do, as Norwegian phone calls cost a fortune, is to forward my homeline to it... (if nec just leave an answer on that to rering this other number so I can pick up.) Reroute my Iphone normal UK calls to it and Send and receive calls in Norway.....!!

and ideas batman

Thank you for your question, my name is Richard and I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

Skype does not have it for Norway, nor is the any plans soon. Sweden and Denmark, yes, but not Norway.

There is another service though you can use, it provides the same functionality as what you want from Skype.

It is called FlyNumber, and can be used on your Smartphone.

This does have numbers for Norway and you can see this here

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Its no problem at all!

You can sign up for it while in the UK

You install an App on the phone (it is VOIP) and the complete instructions on this are below

Feel free to ask if you would like more information please Carrie-Ann
