Another idiot question probably. My home computer calls Skype to Skype fine. My brother in law calls from Canada on his mobile and gives me a "guided tour" of his house on his Iphone 3 and says its free. I cant call anywhere in the UK - I have not tried it abroad yet - on Skype which has been correctly downloaded onto my Iphone 4(which has a monthly contract with a service provider) without the iPhone asking me for Skype Credit. I cant get so much as a ring tone. I can dial a number and then it stays dead and demands Skype credit. Everyone tells me it's meant to be free. What am I doing wrong? Thank you!!
There are two types of connection and you will try 1).
1) call to Skype ID = Skype to Skype call and free.
2) call to Cell phone number = ordinary call to Cell phone incurring calling charges to be settled by Skype Credit / monthly plan.
