Help with International Calling Please

Hi everyone

I'm located in Australia and my pen pal is located in Idaho (IMSI).

I was looking into getting a Skype number to accept their calls with. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if that would work.

If anyone had any other suggestions I would love to here them. Thanks!

Hey. I got myself a Skype number so it doesn't cost my pen pal a lot to call. I have had no issues with it. It costs like $9 a month or there abouts :)

Thank you so much for responding. Yeah, I was concerned about the costs incurred for my pen pal. I was just curious if it would work before I commited to paying for a Skype number. I just have a couple more questions if you don't mind me asking. Do you use WiFi (if so, how is the connection?) or just use mobile data? Thanks again.

No worries. I just use my mobile data and it's just like a regular phone call.

I couldn't accept an incoming call last night (either by pressing the corresponding number on the dialpad or by saying it). I was wondering if you or anyone else has experienced that issue? And if so, how you managed to resolve it? I was thinking next time I might open the call in the Skype app and try use the dialpad from there, hoping that would resolve it.

Yes you must use the  dialpad from Skype then it should work.

Thanks Rins!

I was hoping to try that next time we called, but now I'm no longer receiving calls?! I found an older post which said that switching the number seemed to work and that maybe their original number was too local to the institution, but I really don't want to have to pay for another number. Has anyone else had this issue?
