I understand your concern you will get this error message "Skype Credit Needed" if you don’t have an active subscription https://secure.skype.com/en/calling-rates?expo365=bundled or Skype credit which you can check by clicking on these links https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA570/how-do-i-purchase-skype-credit, or if you try to call a country that isn't supported by your current subscription.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

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
