Using Skype in Italy

Jump to last reply

I am getting myself confused and Skype's website doesn't have a number you can call to ask dumb questions.

I signed up for a plan to be able to call Italy. I used it successfully to call and reserve tickets for Colosseum tickets and tours. Worked great.

I am now getting ready to head to Italy. The plan Is signed up for is for both land a mobile lines. As I understand it I will be able to use my phone [I am from US] to make calls via wifi to phone numbers in ITALY.

I would also like to be able to use Skype to call home here in US. I tried yesterday as a test and it said the call could not connect because I had no credit.

I do in fact have 60 minutes credit, but I am guessing that the credit is only for calls to Italian #s. ????

SO - in order to use my phone to call the US when I am IN Italy, I need to also buy a US plan? IS that correct?

[When I tried to call yesterday, I did put the phone in Airplane mode and enabled the wifi.]

Like I said, I am sure this is a dumb question and I am making this more difficult than need be.

Thanks~
