Divert all your Skype calls to your mobile - $10 flat rate monthly

Got Skype? This nifty little device will allow you to forward all your Skype calls to your mobile using your PSTN line. Combine that with an 027 mobile phone, and Telecoms 'Freedom' plan, and you have virtually unlimited VoIP calls landing on your mobile.

Cost to anyone anywhere in the world to ring your cellphone using Skype? $0
Cost to you to recieve all those calls? $10 monthly

Much cheaper than SkypeOUT and call forwarding if you use Skype a lot, and would rather just have everything go to your mobile.

Makes your mobile phone the ultimate Skype handset really...

I have a Skype DualPhone - received it for a review on Geekzone, and ended up purchasing one for home! Great product. And it's cordless, unlike most "Skype phones" around.

So you'd have to divert landline calls to your mobile?

You wouldnt have to divert regular land line calls to your mobile, although why not? Just have one handset for home / mobile... im sure everyone has been wanting that for ages... of course you still wont get free local outgoing calling on your mobile...

"of course you still wont get free local outgoing calling on your mobile..." Can you use one of these devices to allow calling from your mobile -> PSTN number -> SkypeOut? Of course it won't be free but will be dirt cheap.

Not to rain on your parade, but.... From http://www.telecom.co.nz/content/0,8748,205142-204089,00.html "Freedom applies to direct dial calls to Telecom 027 mobiles. Excludes Quick Call, calling cards, 059 calls and 025 customers (including Tandem). Not compatible with Call Diversion or Customer Link."

Hi Kelsey, this is not using 'call diversion' in the Telecom sense of the term. Its a hardware device that simply bridges your phone line and PC, and does the routing/diversion itself. The PSTN network could not tell the difference between this and a normal telephone call. It is still a direct dial from your home to your mobile. It falls inside their terms, and doesnt require compatibility with, or even use call diversion or customer link. Cheers Tony

i receive calls from a toll barred landline that dial through to the office (landline) which is then diverted to my telecom mobile. how can i reduce my horrendous phone bill? the calling out landline must remain toll barred due to multi users.
