A Skype subscription or a Skype Credit will allow you to make calls to international numbers from Skype for a small fee. Here is a guide to helping you dial a number in another country.
You may be able to make calls using Skype Credit to any landline or mobile number in the world, as well as to some satellite telephones (e.g. Inmarsat) if you have Skype Credit. The calling rates page on our website has a great selection of Skype rates, as well as descriptions of our subscriptions.
The number of numbers you will be able to call using your subscription will depend on the type of number (landline only, mobile only, or both landline and mobile) as well as the area covered by your subscription. The process of subscribing to a magazine can be explained in more detail here.
It is important to note the following:
It is important to note that Skype is not a replacement for your telephone and cannot be used for emergency calls.
It is important to note that Skype does not support all premium rate numbers, geographic numbers, or country-specific numbers (e.g. 1-900 numbers).
