Making Calls with Skype
To call other phones from Skype, you'll need to purchase some Skype credit or a subscription first. The word for this type of call is Skype-to-Phone. These features aren't free, but they're fairly inexpensive if you're interested in doing more with your Skype account.
Other paid services include your own Skype number that anyone can call to reach you on Skype and Skype to Go for low-cost international calls from your phone or mobile device. These must be purchased separately.
The best place to learn about paid services is your account at Skype.com (Skype sign in). There, you can review each service to figure out which one is right for you. You can also purchase what you need, whether you decide to pay as you go, get a subscription, or sign up for another paid service.
