The same happened to me.

I have been making a lot of Skype to Skype calls from Verizon Skype.

It would show in recent calls as calls to 1-(404) numbers. But, before monthly statement, these calls would be erased and would not take minutes.

 

But last billing statement has these calls and overbills me for 900 minutes! 

 

So far, I spent 2-3 hours with Verizon Support team. Most of them don't even know about unlimited Skype to Skype calls. Some of Verizon support suggested to call Skype support, even though, it isn't Skype, but Verizon, who bills me. Finally, one support person submitted question to offline support team that will be answered on Friday.

Re: international calls on skype mobile for verizon

I don't seem to understand the solution, I apologize... So, if a person uses skype on their cell phone to call another person's cell phone through skype, it should be free, with both international and domestic calls?

Re: international calls on skype mobile for verizon

verizon adevertises on their website that skype to skype calls are free..its just if you call to a cell phone directly when they charge minutes etc... they are doing this to many ppl. but they have to refund us, because skype to skype is free. it would be false adverstising

Re: international calls on skype mobile for verizon

verizon charged, and verizon has to retract the fees. they know very well that all 404 are codes are skype calls. you can prove that ..also, verizon stated that this is a national bililgn error., and many ppl were hit..they wiill and have to refund you. not skype. skype is not billing you.....verizon is...
