I just purchased the 3 month subscription to the online number in the US.  There is no problem calling me but I have a problem calling a US number.  It says that I have to purchase the skype credit or get a subscription.

You are correct. 

 

Skype's Online Numbers are intended to receive calls from people using telephones.  The Online Numbers do only one thing when you are making telephone calls from Skype - they could be used as Caller ID, showing the Online Number on the displays of the phones you call.  You still need to have Skype Credit on your account, or a subscription, to call telephones fro myour Skype account. 

 

If you are interested in calling telephones in the US to go with your US Online Number, you may consider purchasing the Unlimited USA (or Unlimited USA & Canada) subscription at US$ 2.99/month.  This would cover calling to both landline and mobile phones in the US, and possibly Canada if you can purchase the two-country subscription (not available everywhere).  If you purchase that subscription on a yearly basis, you get a 15% discount - making the yearly cost just over US$ 30/year.  Otherwise, you could purchase some Skype Credit and pay for each call you make - 2.3 US cents/minute per call, for both landlines and mobiles, plus a connection fee per call.  The per-minute rate goes to 6 US cents/minute for calling Alaska, plus the connection fee per call.
