I am asking how to make skype calls FROM Israel not to Israel. Thanks.
Tech Support Specialist: Cabletech, Computer Support Specialist replied 7 years ago

I apologize for the mistype there. I did mean the other way around. Here is my reply. Have a good day!

 

To answer the questions, skype calls to skype users are done using your username on the program. There is a friend add in the program where you can look up users using different criteria. If you know your friends ID, you can search and add them.


Skype calls from computer to landline and/or phones do cost money. Basically, they have servers all around the country and then are able to allow you to dial out from that computer (all done on their end) which is cheaper doing it this way instead of having to dial from Israel to US for example.


As for dialing, you would use the dial pad, click on the flag for the country and dial the US number with area code and phone number.


For receiving calls, you may want to also look into http://www.skype.com/intl/en-us/features/allfeatures/online-number/ if you haven't already. You could use this feature to buy a local number that forwards calls to your computer so the end user doesn't have to pay more out of pocket to call you.


As for your friends not showing up, they are probably in the category/group called Offline. You can double click this to open this list up to show all people in there. By default, it only shows those that are online.


Please let me know if you have any other questions or something didnt work. I would be more than happy to help. If all questions are answered, please press the accept button so this question may be closed!


It has been a pleasure!

Hi! My name is Josh and I will be assisting you,


Try this:

To dial outside of Skype:

Click on available Skype user IsraelNumber{number} (for ease of usage, we suggest you defined them as "friend" in your Contact list).
2. You will hear a dial tone.
3. Dial your destination number, like you do today.
4. Wait for 3 seconds, or click "#" to signal you have finished dialing your number.
5. Enter your password/PIN number that was assigned to you when sign up time.
6. Call will be connected.



How do I call skype users, from within the network

- To call a Skype user, you should dial 500 + Skype Username on any of the network devices.
For example, to call Skype user ABC, you should dial "500abc" from any of network registered extensions.
- On Xlite softphone you should use the Space key to switch between letters and numbers.

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
