I've seen numerous threads on these forums where foreign posters want to know how they can get a free US based phone number to verify themselves with CPA companies. I figured this little trick out last night to get my own free Skype-In number so I could give people a US based Phone Number to reach me on Skype at my PC. This could also be used be for other things where you basically don't wanna give people your phone number. What you'll need: Skype with a headset or mic Google Voice (It's invite only at the moment, but soon to go public. I applied for an invite a couple weeks ago and already got my account. Hint: Use Gmail when requesting an invite.) Gizmo5 Account (Available at Gizmo5.com) Steps: 1. First of course you'll need Google Voice. Last I checked invites were going on Ebay for about 5 bucks, but if you don't want to pay go ahead sign up for an invite and wait it out. 2. Make an account at Gizmo5.com. This involves basically downloading the software at the website and going through the registration. Once you are registered login to your account and scroll about halfway down the page and you should see a heading called Forwarding Gizmo5 Calls. Gizmo5 makes this easy. Select the Skype radio button and put in your Skype Username. 3. Below that section you should see another heading called Account Overview and under this is a SIP Number similiar to: 1-747-476-XXXX. Make note of this number. 4. Take the SIP Number from Step 3 and forward your Google Voice account to it. When you do this you should get a verification from Google to verify your phone, it will ring through to Skype so fire up your headset and get ready to verify your number via the 2 digit code. Once you are verified you are all done. You can now give people your Google Voice number to be reached on Skype. 5. Enjoy your new US based Skype In/PC Phone Number!
