I have seen the tutorials, and also read the FAQ, and also searched the boards.
It says unlimited skype to skype calling/text whether internation or domestic. Does these use minutes/text alloitments? I read it does and it doesn't, and the FAQ could be worded a little better to help **bleep** like me understand.
or is it like this.
Skype to Skype is free, but if I use it to call/text someone that isn't on skype it costs minutes/text?
a idiot proof explaination please lol.
Solved! Go to Correct Answer
this is my understanding (i only use it for skype to skype). skype to skype does not use your minutes. i wasn't aware you could text with skype? i know you can leave typed messages or kind of im with other skype users. none of that is considered text either. IF you use skype to call normal phones, you may have to pay for that....but to skype, not verizon. sorry i couldn't be more help.....i have only ever used it to skype with other skype users. it's nice because my plan has very few minutes so if i'm gettin close to going over and others use skype, i can call them w/o using minutes.
Hmm, I seem to be getting docked for minutes anyway for what should be a skype to skype call... What is supposed to happen when I call a skype user that happens to have a skype subscription with a landline phone number attached to their skype. Because I think its counting it as a landline phone instead of skype to skype. Which seems very wrong to me....
Refer to the following for how Skype mobile is billed:
2. An international Skype-to-Skype call:
3. A domestic or international Skype-to-Skype instant message:
4. A call to a domestic number (either mobile or landline):
*Note: All included plan minutes apply accordingly (i.e. Friends & Family, Mobile to Mobile, Unlimited Nights & Weekends and Anytime Minutes)
5. a call to an international number outside of the U.S. (either mobile or landline):
