My cell phone is drying out in a bag of rice. I know I can call FROM my laptop to other people's phones, but I need to know how to have them CALL MY LAPTOP, and I need to give them a phone number. Can this be done. I have a wireless router used via cable service, and laptop running XP. Thanks. Karen

Use the same application you are using to call from, it will accept calls if the service you are using offers that. Skype or something. Usually this stuff is not free though unless they are all on the same software. Cell to Skype calls will cost. If you sign up for the full service, you'll get a phone number you can use.

Vonage should have the same thing.

You can use Skype on whichever phone you have if you have an iphoneyou can call your laptop for free and if you're expecting someone to call you all you need todos open Skype on the phone and set your status to online and they can call you
