Can I use Skype with Grasshopper?

    Yes, you can combine your Grasshopper and Skype systems for both inbound and outbound calling.

    To use Skype for inbound calling, you will need to forward your number to your SkypeIn or online number.
    Note: You need an actual Skype number, not your Skype user name, to forward your calls to.
    1. To make outbound calls with Skype, follow Skype's instructions to set up your caller ID to use the callout feature.
    2. Dial out using your Skype account. Caller ID will show your Skype phone number, not your Grasshopper phone number.
      Note: If you want to call out directly from Skype, you will not be able to use your Grasshopper number as the outbound phone number because you need to confirm your number with an SMS message.
