Will I get charged if a Skype user calls my iPhone from their computer?

My husband is in Afghanistan and may have more computer access than phone access. First, how do I stay signed in all the time on my iPhone? And second, if he calls me from a computer in Afghanistan to my phone which is in the US, do I need to have credits of any kinds? Will either of us get charged at all?

Re: Will I get charged if a Skype user calls my iPhone from their computer?

I can't answer the question about staying signed in all the time.  Hopefully someone will be provide an answer.  But I can tell you that if your husband calls you Skype-to-Skype there is no charge for the call.


If you do a video call and you're on cellular data, just be careful of not going over your data plan.  If you're on wifi....no problem.
