Hi everyone.

I'm starting an online business where I need to make and receive phone calls from the UK to the USA!

I need to have a USA phone number which I can advertise on my website and that a supplier in the US can use to call me.

Anyone got any ideas of the best way to do this?

thanks guys

      You can buy a skype number.When people call your US phone number,it rings on your computer.With skype you can have a number in the country of your choice but still receive calls wherever you are.The callers will think they are calling a local number because it will not cost them extra.

    You can use Twilio and you can use the OpenVBX to setup the while virtual pbx on your web server.

    Twilio is cheap and OpenVBX is free.

    agree skype is one option, another for anyone interested in a service called Tollfreeforwarding.com, worth contacting them if you want telephone support as they put you through an exchange....

    There was some I saw before which worked out cheaper than Skype but at least with them you can rely on them a little more.
