Skype and Swiss 0848 numbers

Is there any reason why they won't work?

I get a message saying the number I'm calling blah blah .

I was trying to call Delta to confirm if I could take a puppy in the cabin with me on the return part of a transatlantic leg of a flight and since my phone broke just as we were getting to the answer, I tried again to find out why i can't call Delta using their 0848 number on Skype.

No idea anyone know of a solution to this other than buying a phone.

any other voip services allow you to call 'shared numbers'?

thanks a lot
Cath

Re: Skype and Swiss 0848 numbers

0848 numbers are premium numbers, you have to pay a service. Skype is free, so no charge is made.

Call the number from an ordinary phone service, without Skype.

SkypeOut isn't free, and does support some premium numbers, they just don't say which ones!

She doesn't seem to have a phone...

I use freecall.com which works well, but sorry they also don't show which numbers are supported on their help pages.

Also try this: http://www.saynoto0870.com/ It's UK centric but may give you a non-premium number.

Re: Skype and Swiss 0848 numbers

Or this unverified one:

Delta Airlines 0871 221 1222 020 7660 0767 Main London number for all enquiries

Not sure if calling a London number with SkypeOut is good value or not, but at least they'd speak English for sure.

ps. try their reservations number - funnilly enough they don't tend to charge for that one !
