Calling Canada from England

Hi, I'm considering buying the Unlimited Ireland, UK, US and Canada deal to call my girlfriend in Canada, I just need to know would she get any charge on her cellphone for recieving a call from me? Wasn't sure and does that deal definitely allow me to call Mobiles?

 

Thanks in advance

No. Skype doesn't charge for inbound calls.

Yes. It does include calls to Canadian landlines and cellphones.

Re: Calling Canada from England

Hi, I took this reply and went and bought the subscription, I may have called my girlfriend 5 times totaling maybe an hour of talk time, she's just been charged $350 on her cell phone for this month, is there any explanation as to why this happened if you said she wouldn't be charged for me calling her.

Hello,

As I said, Skype doesn't charge for receiving calls. The charges may have been applied by the cellphone carrier. Roaming costs? If you ask the cellphone carrier what the charges are for they will tell you
