Re: Do Skype Calls Cost Money?

if the person is online it doesn't matter where they are I am in Sweden my daughter is in Texas and it is free for us as long as we both are online.

if you get one of their packages or skype credits it doesn't matter if they are on or off line but there are restrictions on certain plans so choose carefully. the premium package right now has a free 30 trial period and it is unlimited calling world wide but only has 4 countries which you can call cell phones so like i said read carefully before you decide otherwise just be online at the same time

Re: Do Skype Calls Cost Money?

does it say you do not have enough credits to make the call? if not then it is a bad internet connection and you should just try having your friend reboot and you do the same.

Re: Do Skype Calls Cost Money?

I have just downloaded the skype app on my HTC in Australia and managed to call my first contact on a pc. I am heading to New Zealand next week and would like to know a few things so that I can avoid costs.

1. Do I need to activate international roaming  to skype an a) AU mobile b) AU pc or will it work in a Wi-Fi hotspot?

2. Do I need a Skype phone number or can I use the current mobile, and are there any costs associated with these calls from NZ to Au?

Thanks in advance.

If there are any costs associated
