Do I need Skype Credit to call a Skype number?

After 8 minutes of talking from my Skype name to a Skype number, the call disconnected, and won't reconnect because I "need to get Skype credit to call this number." But I'm using Skype to call it. Is that normal? Is there a charge for a Skype user to call a Skype number? TIA

calling a Skype Online number is like calling any other PSTN phone number -- you need Skype Credit or a suitable calling subscription

furthermore it usually makes no sense to use Skype to call a Skype Online number, because if you already know the Skype Name associated with the Online number, you can call the user for free already
