Skype now lets users from India to make free calls or should we say holiday calls to US and Canada for a limited period. This offer is valid from December 16, 2014 (00:01 IST) to March 1, 2015 (00:01 IST).
Skype users can call either landline or mobile phones of US and Canada and the only thing that they need to make free calls is to have a Skype account.
For Existing Skype Account/Subscription:
- If you have credit in your Skype account during the Offer Period, you will not be charged (and your credit will not be used) for qualifying calls from India to the U.S. and Canada made during the Offer Period. Once the Offer Period has ended, you will be charged (and your credit used) as usual.
- If, during the Offer Period, you have a Skype subscription with a fixed-minutes allowance (e.g. 120 minutes per month) that includes calls from India to landlines and mobiles in the U.S. and Canada then your minutes allowance will not be used for qualifying calls made during the Offer Period. However, your subscription will still end at the specified time (e.g. after one month for a 120 minutes per month subscription) even if you have not used your full minutes allowance; unused minutes cannot be carried forward beyond the end of the subscription period.
