With Skype, everyone can make outbound calls to mobile or landline numbers around the world.
But what if you have no credit left or never added credit? You can still make calls from Skype with $0 credit.
How is this possible? A new service from DIDlogic.com lets you get a “Skype-callback” right to your Skype software and get connected to the telephone number.
Typically, a web callback service looks like this:
You can now initiate the same “call back” where “YOUR PHONE NUMBER” is simply your Skype username. And the first leg of the call is free. You don’t have to pay for incoming call to Skype.
How to use the service:
- Fire up Skype.
- Go to DIDlogic.com and enter your Skype username
- Enter the phone number you want to call. The system will call you first and connect you to the number you want to reach.
This service may be quite useful if you do not have any credit left on Skype. This option is often cheaper per-minute than using Skype. For example, Skype charges:
Spain mobile from Skype: $0.31
Canada from Skype: $0.024
Latvia from Skype: $0.07
Russia mobile from Skype: $0.071
Kazakhstan from Skype: $0.175
Using the service provided by DIDlogic.com you can get much lower rates – 3 to 20 times lower than Skype, in fact:
Spain mobile via Skype-callback: $0.091
Canada via Skype-callback: $0.005
Latvia via Skype-callback: $0.027
Russia mobile via Skype-callback: $0.037
Kazakhstan via Skype-callback: $0.008
How does it work, technically?
After you click “Webcall” on the DIDlogic website, you get a window with destination option. Chose “Skype” from the dropdown list and enter your username (coolguy123 for instance).
Type in your Skype address and enter the number you wish to call:
The system will ring your ‘coolguy123′ Skype account – you will see this as in incoming call:
Answer the call.
You can also make calls from your Skype to any SIP address (completely free), from your SIP software to any phone in the world (only pay for 1 leg of the call – incoming SIP is free), or even call for free from any SIP to any SIP (checkout sipbroker.com for prefixes of SIP networks).
Last but not least, you can use the Webcall from DIDlogic in a traditional, old-fashion way – that is, enter 2 real phone numbers and click “CALL”. You will be connected at the same rock-bottom rates.
