I came across FlyNumber as I’m looking for an alternate to Skype In numbers. I’m impressed with the flexibility of forwarding options to different services as it allows for growth. However, like many people I already have a number with Skype and would like to continue using it (for in and out).
My understanding is that Skype will allow porting out of numbers (but not in). That would be perfect if we could transfer a Skype In number to FlyNumber. Of course, Skype are also vague so any feedback on this would be useful. Please refer to the following article:
Porting our Skype numbers would lead to another limitation. If we continue to use Skype, we can’t set Caller ID of an outgoing number without SMS. Receiving SMS would be incredibly useful in your product. Rather than SMS forwarding, you could initially resolve the SMS issue if you were able to display the received SMS within your web interface. All we need is the ability to read the SMS so we can verify the FlyNumber with other services like Skype.
Hope the feedback helps!
