Introducing Skype To Go – a new way to save on calls abroad from any phone
Skype To Go is an exciting new way to call friends, family and colleagues abroad at great Skype rates from any mobile or landline. Yes, that’s right, even your 10-year-old mobile or antique landline phone. You don’t need an Internet connection, and you don’t need to be in a 3G coverage area.
Here’s how the magic works. Let’s say your aunt lives in Australia and you live in New York.
Simply give us your aunt’s number in Australia, and we’ll 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.
With Skype To Go, you can use your Skype Credit or subscription and get the same low rates* that you enjoy when you call from Skype on your computer today. Except that there’s nothing to install – it’s a great way to use Skype when you’re away from your computer.
It’s free to set up a Skype To Go number, and you can have up to 9 of them. It only takes a few minutes, so get started now!
For those of you who are already in the know, here’s what’s new. You can now set up a separate number for each person you want to call, and save them directly to your phone’s contact list, meaning that your friends and family are even easier to reach. No more waiting around with voice prompts – the call just goes straight through.
* Local operator charges may apply when calling a Skype To Go number. When using a mobile, inclusive minutes may apply. When using Skype Credit the standard connection fee applies.
