Skype to Phone Service

I use the call forwarding feature of SKYPE to transfer calls to my cell when I unavailable and offline. When the call gets routed, my cell phone rings, I answer and then after 2 seconds or so I hear the other party. My question is: Does the call stay on SKYPE servers or is now completely handled by the local cell phone company?

when the call is forwarded and you answer your cell, it leaves the Skype network. the delay is skype handling the setup between the original calling party and your cell phone forwarded number). Once it connects that call, Skpye doesn't handle it beyond that and the call doesn't use the skype network. It's not entirely handled by the cellular provider becuase that initial connection has to be forwarded to your cell service but one it's forwards the call, it's all on your cellular providers network.
