    As call duration I used 9 minutes and 20 seconds, but for some reason final cost was calculated for 10 minutes.

      Hi! That's right, because Skype use per-minute billing rates. This means that seconds are rounded up to the next minute. For example, if the call lasted 9 minute and 10 seconds, you'll be charged as for 10 minutes. The same thing if the call lasted 9 minutes and 55 seconds, at final you'll be charged as for 10 minutes.

    sir I think the calls rate to Nigeria is too high and you should try to make the unlimited calls available so as to make it cheaper for us

      Hi Stephen! Unfortunately, there no exists a subscription with unlimited calls to Nigeria. Since this is an unofficial blog, I am powerless in such cases. You can contact Skype Support and ask them if they are planning to enable unlimited calls to Nigeria.

    I've had my UK Skype number using top up credits for a year. Happy with calls from Spain where I live to my UK clients. My current balance is 33 euros approximately.

    I've just signed up for an all inclusive subscription. I will really want the European one but I'm trying out the free month worldwide unlimited trial first.

    For the next few weeks I need to call mobiles within Qatar. Are these included. Most start with +9746 as per your approved list on another site. But will these calls be free as within the first trial subscription month or be taken out of my current credit?

    Also, when my free worldwide month trial is over and I select unlimited European subscription will my unused credit be used or will you use my Debit card I provided and leave any unused credit as a positive balance?

      Hello Mark! First of all please note that this is an unofficial blog, so I cannot guarantee that my responses are correct. This is why, if you have any doubts, I recommend you to contact the Skype Support.

      About your questions:
      1) According to “Unlimited World” subscription you can call mobile numbers only in Canada, China, Guam, Hong Kong SAR, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Thailand, and United States. As you can see, Qatar is not listed here and due to this, calls in this country will not be free (i.e., you’ll pay per minute from your current credit).

      2) Not sure if I understood you correctly, but it should be noted that current Skype credit can be used to buy Skype subscriptions. Skype credit can be used as payment method during purchasing process.

      Hello! In Skype, it doesn't matter where you are calling from. The cost is determined only by destination number. As for your question, please check Skype call rates to Iran.

      I tested it right now — I can make calls to Moldova. Are you sure that the phone number is active and the called user has not blocked or rejected you?

    Hi, I had $5.75 credit before the call to Croatia. My call was 5 min 20 secs and according to your calculator it was as follows: = $2.429 (6 min × $0.390 + $0.089) yet I only have $1.75 listed as the remaining amount.
    5.75 - 2.43 = 3.32 not 1.75

    Although this is not a great amount if applied all the time at an almost 50% extra charge on each call amounts to fraud. Please explain why the remaining amount does not compute?

      Hello! If the duration of your call was really only 5 min 20 secs, then this is weird and you should contact the official Skype support for clarifications.

    I have Skype for Business and need to schedule Skype meetings in different countries like Botswana, Kenya, Peru, Philippines, Haiti, India, Tanzania, Uganda, Thailand, Malawi, Zimbabwe, South Africa. Some of these countries have local Skype numbers and others do not.
    For the countries that have the local skype numbers, do the participants dial that number first to join the skype meeting that has the US number?
    Do both skype and non-skype callers dial in to the local skype number first to join the meeting? For countries that do not have a local number and the participants do not have skype, is there a cheaper way to join the skype meeting besides making the long distance call?
    Thank you very much,

    I just tried to use the calculator, but it kept giving me an error message about how the number must be in the international format. It was a call to Cuba, (+53) 78xxxxxx. I tried missing out the brackets, spaces etc., but it didn't help. What is the problem?

      Hello Francis,
      Thank you for your message. The problem was that this calculator required the phone number to start with "+". To avoid misunderstanding, now I removed this requirement. Therefore, please try it again.

        Thanks, but as you can see from my message, I included the + sign. I also tried every other combination and permutation I could think of, but it didn't work. However, I just tried the calculator again, and now it does work. Thanks.

          I apologize for that bug (blush) It literally required first character to be "+" (in your case first character is a bracket). Anyway, I'm happy that I was able to fix it. And this is only thanks to you!

    I use Skype, not Skype for business, together with a landline number and it works well.

    The only thing I don't like is being forced to use the Skype client and would like to use an IP phone. I use VOIP for other services and I would like all incoming calls to terminate to an IP phone.

    My question is does anybody known of any IP phones or 'interfaces' which would allow Skype calls to be routed to/from an IP phone?
