Hi, you need Skype Credit or a subscription to call landlines and mobiles. Skype to Skype calls are free, so you need to add a person to your Skype contact list to be able to make free calls.

you have to not only buy credit but also  rent the number ( a subscription)

To clarify, Skype to Skype calls are always free of charge, regardless of which platform, device, or computer used.
