calling 00800 number with skype from ch

I've been researching and can't find an answer.. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong.

I'm using skype on my computer
I live in Switzerland
I want to call a number 00800xxxxxxxx
I've tried different countries, removing leading zero's, ........
Nothing - I can't seem to get a connection.

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong --- any suggestions?

Re: calling 00800 number with skype from ch

Where is the number located (here or elsewhere)? It looks wrong to me - usually it's 0800xxxxx rather than 00800xxxxx.

If it's located in the UK, for example, you would have to dial +44 800xxxx

Otherwise google it for the country in which it's located.

Skype simply doesn't support these numbers, so you'll have to find another way. What's wrong with dialling from a normal phone?
