We’re moving to Malta. We’re also, obviously, moving our business to Malta. I’ve got some baffling phone issues to sort out, and telephony really isn’t my strength. Here’s the lay of the land:
We have three phone numbers we’d like to retain, Capulet’s landline plus our two cell phone numbers (currently with Fido). Ideally we’d like to use these numbers in Malta, but that’s probably not viable from a price perspective.
Alternately, it’d be acceptable if we parked these numbers, and had all voicemails forwarded to our email accounts. I investigated if this was possible on Fido’s site, and came up empty.
So that’s the incoming calls side. Any suggestions?
On the outgoing side, Motorola wants to give me a phone to review. I’m thinking I might take them up on it, and then get a mobile account from a Maltese provider.
Of course, rates on international calls will still be pretty pricey, so we might go with a combination of SkypeOut and the mobile, or SkypeOut, a Maltese landline and the mobile.
Does anybody have a genius plan that will simplify our Maltese telephone woes?
UPDATE: I forgot to mention that, around the house in Malta, we’ll want to have some kind of reliable, half-decent speaker phone setup. In my experience, Skype over our Mac’s speakers/microphone totally blows.
