skype to skype wants $4.99

I downloaded Skype for iphone 5, husband downloaded Skype for his Android.  We were on my mifi  since we do not have a cell signal at the house doing a test call supposedly a "skype to skype" and it wants $4.99.  I thought that it was free.

 

I also tried a Skype on iphone to a landline and it wants $4.99.  I thought that this was free too.  Help.

Skype-to-Skype calls are free. Calls to landlines and mobile phones incur a charge.

Re: skype to skype wants $4.99

Trying to make a skype account to skype account mobile phone call and skype wants $4.99 for the call.  It's supposed to be free.  Is this a scam?  Or, what are the steps to make a call?

Please take a look here to see what's free and what costs a little: http://www.skype.com/en/what-is-skype/

If what you find on that page to be contradicting what you were expecting: Can you please explain where you learned that calls from Skype to mobile phones were supposed to be free?

Keep your Skype up to date
