    It’s free to forward incoming Skype calls to another Skype contact. You just need to have that contact in your contact list.

    To forward your incoming calls to a mobile or landline, you’ll need a little Skype Credit or a calling subscription that covers the country you want to receive the forwarded calls in. If you use Skype Credit, forwarded calls are charged at Skype’s low per-minute rates.

    The person who is calling you on Skype doesn’t pay anything.

    You can choose up to three mobile or landline numbers worldwide, or you can choose to have calls forwarded to another Skype contact in your contact list. Just select add another number to add more phone numbers or another Skype account.
