I am looking at an accessory that will allow me connect to my skype account using this device and connect my home phone to use through Skype.
The link to this accessory is as follows:
It states "US / Canada customers only. Enjoy convenient, free Skype-to-Skype calls and low-cost Skype calls from your home phone — plus a year of unlimited* calls to the US and Canada and up to 200** international minutes." So it would seem that a 12 month service of Skype to telephone calls within USA and Canada is included, as well as 200 international minutes.
Further down in the product description it states:
"Can I receive calls?
Yes, if someone calls you, your home phone will ring and you can answer as normal."
My question is, does this also include skype-in along with the package, so I would be able to make unlimited calls, and receive unlimited incoming calls through my existing skype-in number if I purchased this device, or is it only Skype-out service that comes with the device?
Solved! Go to Solution.
In order to receive calls from regular phone numbers using Skype, you will need a SkypeIn/Online number. That is not included along with your Freetalk Connect.Me purchase.
