I am trying to create a Skype account on my Verizon Motorola Android but when I enter my cell phone number it says that I need to enter a country area code, I am located in Florida (USA) and when I enter "1" in front of my 10 digits number (that start with code 321), it still says that I need to enter a country area code. Which code is the one I need?

When using Skype the correct dial string is + country access code > area code > telephone #.

e.g. To call to (or within) the United States +1 xxx xxx xxxx

       To call to (or within) UK                         + 44 xxx xx xxxx


Do NOT use any other sequence.

Thank you.


I recommend that you always run the latest Skype version: Windows & Mac
