when we purchased the call phone section through skype , the first option is register ID with email, skype id or phone no, in that i have given the phone no

Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

if i understand you signed up for a skype account yesterday with a phone number

was it your phone number or your sister's number

Customer: replied 24 days ago.
sister's phone no
Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

ok and after that did you buy a calling plan in skype?

Customer: replied 24 days ago.
to make phone call from philipipians to India
Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

ok..how are you trying to call from phillipines to india

are you trying to call a phone number

or are you trying to call a skype id

Customer: replied 24 days ago.
phone no
Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

ok is it a landline number or a mobile number

Customer: replied 24 days ago.
its my sister's mobile no, she has skype downloaded in that mobile,
Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

depending on the plan you have purchased it may\may not cover mobile phones calling

so we need to get the same checked

Customer: replied 24 days ago.
on the details it states that either land phone or mobile
we tried both , nothing is working
Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

please understand that there are 2 ways to call from skype

1. from your skype to a mobile phone number(in this case its not necessary that skype should be installed on other persons phone as call would go to their phone as a normal telephone call)

2. from your skype to her skype id( in this case both of you should be logged in to skype with your own id and calling is free)

Customer: replied 24 days ago.
we know that, we paid for the first option
Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

would you like me to remote connect and check the problem for you

i have already sent you the remote offer

Customer: replied 24 days ago.
do I need to pay it for that
Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

if you are trying the first option then adding a skype app on her phone will not make a difference as skype is not required on her phone

Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

i hope you have a different skype id and she has a different one

Customer: replied 24 days ago.
then how can we make call
Customer: replied 24 days ago.
we have different skype ids
Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

ok i will tell you how you need to do this step by step

Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

you have a skype id and you are currently logged in with your own id to skype

is that correct

Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

and your sister is logged in with her skype id

Customer: replied 24 days ago.
no, got google
phone call from skype
sign in with ph no and password
then it states that this ac has 800min left
this is what i have done
my sister sign in her skype ac, there is a phone sign , if we click on that ask for dial phone no. but it is not going through
Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

ok i will tell you how to do this

open your skype

in your contacts you will see your sisters skype id..if not add her skype id in your contact list

then click on her name

then you will see a chat window open up with a phone icon

click on the phone icon and if she is logged on skype , she will recieve your call

Customer: replied 24 days ago.

Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

once that is done let me know

Customer: replied 24 days ago.
Michelle, i don't have any more time to chat, please close this, 2 hrs now , nothing happened, so i am not interested to continue this, so please close my accounts for this chating as well as direct debit for for skype phone call
Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

see i am trying to get this sorted but 3 way support is taking too long as you are passing the message to her and vice versa and i ma getting delayed responses

i even had a skype tech with me but had to leave because of delayed responses from you

i had offered a remote assistance which you have denied

plus the password ***** has shared is not working

so my support is reallly limited to what you share with me

if you wish not to continue you may exit the chat

Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

else if you want you can let me know if she has a pc with her and i can remote in on her pc and get this sorted for her directly

Customer: replied 24 days ago.

Expert:  Michelle replied 24 days ago.

i had given the steps to edit her profile but seems she is unbale to do that as well

i will opt out in this case as i am limited due to her inability to try what i am giving

Customer: replied 24 days ago.

Expert:  Robert M. replied 19 days ago.

make sure that you are signed in to the skype with the same id that you used to purchase the credits.

and make sure on the skype website that they are international credits.

you should be able to go from the skype to the skype website to "add credit" even if you do not purchase them again it should show you what is in the account that you are logged into.

can you send me a screen shot of what your skype looks like and what the account looks like ?
