Calling Local Cell Phones While In Isreal


I have a free skype account.

I am living in Jerusaelm Israel and would like to use skype to call internationaly as well as to call local cellphones and landlines to replace my cell phone becasue its cheap.

I am trying to call my own cell phone number on skype which is a Jerusalem numebr  just to test to see if it will work before importing all of my contacts. But when I call another person answers. I have tried to call in various formats.

054 xxx xxxx

+972 054 xxx xxxx


How do I do this?

Try dialing +972 54 xxx xxxx (dropping the zero in the 054 area code).
