- Motorola Droid X 2.3.3, Stock OP, provider: Verizon Wireless US, Skype: 126.96.36.199
I make calls from my Droid phone using the Skype app to the person who uses Skype on her computer. This month I found that the calls made through Skype started to show up in Verizon system as the calls made from phone to phone (with the area code 404) and I have to pay for all the minutes I used as if I were calling to that phone number. Verizon representative said that in their system these calls are shown as regular phone calls and the Skype app is to blame and I should contact Skype about it. I have been making Skype calls from this phone for over a year and have never had any problem.
Please help me to solve this issue.
Did you get this resolved?
The same happened to me. After more than 12 months using skype to skype calls, last bill has overages charge for $500.
From what I found (404) is Atlanta, GA datacenter where Verizon and Skype are integrated.
All previous months, some process at Verizon would erase all calls to (404) numbers, so they would not appear on the bill at all. It seems that stopped happening.
After talking to 4 reps from Verizon support, last one opened ticket with offline support that will be answered in a few days.
