Initiating a three-way conference call between a landline and a Skype account

Hi, 

 

I would like to conduct a conference call with three participants (including myself). I will be logging in from my Skype account, and I would like to dial out to a landline and another Skype account (the Skype user is international, if that makes a difference). The landline user is based in the US.

 

My question is, if I sign up for the $2.99/month Unlimited US and Canada

plan, will I be able to conduct this call?

 

Thank you.

Hi there,

Short answer is YES :happy:

Since one of your contacts will be using US landline you'll need either a subscription or Skype Credit. I can see you have done some research and found Unlimited US&Canada subscription.
This subscription will cover the call to US landline and you can easily add your friend's Skype account into the call for free (it doesn't matter where they are located)

I hope this helps.

When you mention 'land line' --can that line also be a mobile phone..?

Of course :happy:

In a group call you can have landlines, mobiles and Skype accounts. When including a landline or mobile call will be charged, meaning you need either Skype Credit or a subscription to cover the cost.
