    Skype roaming options

    I got an unlimted Skype deal c $15 per month in a ltd list of countries inc Denmark and Czech republic but not Slovakia where Ill be soon.

    I can buy a local sim cheap but a hassle

    Any idea if I use skype on non local sim of charges , I've looked on website but none the wiser.

    Anywhere in Thailand with free wifi its a free call.

    I've looked at Line, non runner and I have Viber but although sound quality similar and ease of numbers it is not best solution as some of my older less techie friends only have Skype?
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    I thought that Skype to Skype was free but you had to pay for calls to non-skypers.

    Where the $15 is not skype to skype but to mobiles

    50 cents a day to call mobiles is unbeatable for me

    The question is calling thai mobile out of Slovakia , maybe I'll use my Thai Sim of course wife refuses to be on same network and I'm too lazy to change as have to update so many other things, guess I'll just have to cough up

    Skype used to have a worldwide deal but not to Thai mobiles of course
    It says unlimited but it isnt in practice and cut you off eavery hour so you need to redial etc

    Anyone think there is a better serviec Viber ,Line etc

    I've got a call2 account which is great to UK etc but very poor sound quality in E Europe and seems clunky callback , ok on a PC but fiddly on a tablet or mobile

    The messenger side is possible without the FB.
    All you need is a WiFi connection and it's free.
