For unknown reason my skype calls are using 4049418599 to call my skype contacts and it uses my anytime minutes.
Called 611 three times, they said it's impossible.
But it already happened .
So, I'm using "Skype Mobile by Verizon" application on my Motorola Droid 2.
I'm making sype to skype international call. I'm not using my phone contacts list.
To make a call I open skype mobile application, choose skype contact and make a call.
Call goes to that 404 number.
According to question #3 on this page:
It should not use my anytime minutes, but it does.
I can see that in my verizon by clicking "View Call Details" link.

is under "Peak" usage type.
Spoke to tech support, they suggested to uninstall skype application and install it again.
It's impossible, because "uninstall" option is not available for this application, skype was pre-installed on my phone.
Another suggestion was to clear the application data, and not import contacts from my phone next time skype asks for it.
I did exactly like I was told.
But it still goes through 4049418599 number.
Can somebody from Verizon officials explain me what's going on?
Using skype was one of the reasons to switch to verizon.
And after reading FAQ section on verizon web-site i was sure it will be free.
But looks like it's not.
Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions?
My question is are you calling an international number OR a U.S. number of someone overseas??? I would think the latter would result in a use of minutes.
