Skype Mobile Query

Skype Mobiles.

I've emailed their support but still haven't received a reply so wondered if anyone on here has any knowledge.

I basically want to know how Skype Mobile works... If I buy a Pay as you go Skype Mobile Handset + Unlimited World Calls Package, Do I have to call a number which accesses the unlimited calls account and uses up credit ? Or would I just dial a number from the skype mobile and only pay the monthly fee for those unlimited calls ?

I assume from whatever the answer is above I can work it out on a contract, but that if it does use a gateway then it would use the free minutes or credit to access the unlimited calls ?


Sorry if that's confusing :S I think I've explained what I mean though

K

EDIT: I've included my second post... I think it might explain what I mean a little better


If I bought one of these: Skype Pay as you go Phones

and then got this : The Unlimited Europe subscription (Skype)

.... Would the Unlimited calls be added to my phone package so for example I could call France and just use up the 10,000 minutes on that package ? or will I be charged the 12p per min rate which would be a gateway to the Skype Unlimited calls ?


I'm not doing too well trying to explain what I mean here, I just find a phone for £39.99 and being able to call landlines in 20 European countried for £3.00 hard to believe :)

I appreciate anyone's help

Im afraid its a tad confusing, but as I understand it, you're hoping to use a skype phone and one of those rented numbers from skype that forward a call to other countries.

If so, then I'm afraid its a no-go: the skype client on the skype phone can only ring other skype users (who are on either their PC or a skype phone) all other calls are charged as normal, including ones to skype-owned numbers.

Nope, sorry I was confusing I meant:

Sorry, skype-out doesn't work on the skype phone. Its skype client can only make skype to skype calls.

Someone on the skype phone forum has come up with an ingenious plan though. They've programmed a skype client that runs on your PC, using its own account, and takes any incoming skype calls and conferences a skype-out number in. This sort-of gets around the problem, but requires the program on your PC to know what number you wanted to call beforehand.

the thread in question is here:

So these phones can only skype dial out to a PC? Or can a PC skype to the phone?
