Looking for cheap, reliable Answering Service - any recommendations?

Hi,

I'm looking for a good answering service that will be able to take calls from US customers only, and then forward them on to me and my biz partner so we can get back to them if needed (we reside in Europe, hence the need...). Not too many calls are expected, but we just want the service as backup for our online clients who may have questions.

Any recommendations much appreciated!

Thanks!

      Thanks for those!
      First one is a bit pricey, but second one might work!

    Here is your best solution.

    Grab yourself a Skype Online Number. You can purchase a number in any country you want and when people call you can answer it over Skype or just let them go to voicemail. You get free voicemail so you can just record a voicemail greeting and anytime someone calls, you get an email letting you know you have a new voicemail message to listen to. Your customers will think it's just an ordinary phone number.

    Prices are around $60 for the whole year.

      I don't feel like setting off the anti-Google crowd today, so I won't mention that Google Voice might be an option for you...

      That's a pretty cool idea this the first time I hear this.
