The correct country calling code for the USA is +1.

Hello,

No. With Skype you use only the code for the country you are calling + the area code and number.

For example to call to/within the United States the correct dial string is: +1 xxx xxx xxxx


TIME ZONE - US EASTERN. LOCATION - PHILADELPHIA, PA, USA.

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

If my advice helped to fix your issue please mark it as a solution to help others.
Please note that I generally don't respond to unsolicited Private Messages. Thank you.
