Skype to Go Number : Call Abroad from any Phone

Skype has launched a new service named "Skype To Go Number" which gives you a numbers that let you call your friends, family and colleagues abroad from any mobile or landline while avoiding international calling charges. Good thing is it can be used to call any phone in supported country list.

To understand what exactly is this service, lets take an example. Let’s say your aunt lives in Australia and you live in New York. Simply give us your aunt’s number in Australia, and Skype will convert it into a unique Skype To Go number with a New York area code.

Then, all you need to do is call this number from your mobile or landline, and you can talk right away to your aunt in Australia at Skype’s amazing rates. This is quite simple and quite unlike the video calling skype application. And there is nothing to install, it’s a great way to use Skype when you’re away from your computer (or not have access to Skype app on your mobile). You don’t need an Internet connection, and you don’t need to be in a 3G coverage area.

How much Skype to Go Cost (Getting a number cost)

- You can set up one Skype To Go number for one of your Skype contacts even if you don’t have Skype Credit or a subscription.
- To set up more than one Skype To Go numbers for your Skype contacts, you’ll need a little Skype Credit or a subscription. You can have up to 30 Skype To Go numbers.

The cost of a Skype To Go call is split up into two parts.
- First, the operator charge – when you call a local Skype Number from your mobile or landline, you’re using either the minutes from your call plan or your phone credit. Then, from your Skype account, you only pay for a regular call to either a mobile or landline at great Skype rates.
- The total cost of your call is whatever your operator charges you for the local call, and the cost of a regular call from your Skype account.
- With Skype To Go, you can also get an Access Number in supported countries. The only thing you’ll need is a verified phone number. If you have already verified your phone number, you should have received a notification via email. If not, it’s easy to verify your number.
