Hi,

Why is the Philippines not on the list of landlines that my Skype minutes can call? There are a lot of Filipinos in the US and most of them like to call the Philippines regularly. Is there a technical reason for this limitation?

 

Thanks.

Hello,

To qualify for inclusion a country must offer low cost local call rates. At present the rates in the Philippines are too expensive.


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

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

Thanks for the reply.

I also tried using an updated Skype desktop app on Windows 10 but the calls are still not going through.
