Hi, I have recently availed of an offer from skype one month free unlimited calls, I don't have an online number or anything, and I was just wondering how people I call on their mobiles get charged?
I am calling from Ireland to Canada, and I am wondering will they get charged as if it were any regular call with rates from whatever phone plan they're on, or will they get charged long distance rates?
If they do get charged long distance is there any way I can make it so they wouldn't get charged those high rates?

Hi, Darlene RazzleDazzle, and welcome to the Community!
The wireless plans I am familiar with do not charge extra fees (or separately) for incoming international calls. Depending upon the plan the people you call subscribe to, their accounts may or may not (if they have an unlimited minutes plan) be debited the number of minutes for the length of the call, but this would be normal.
I do not know of anything that you could do to stop any fees charged by their wireless carriers; best that they check their plans. You may also research a Skype-to-Go number http://www.skype.com/intl/en/features/allfeatures/
