Next we will talk about how to make free calls from Skype by using access number which has free minutes

Solve Problem:
Some of my readers told me it didn't work well, it hung up itself after entered the phone number at skype dial pad, sometimes, I had the same problem, and I found out that the skype access number 
e.g:+990009369991480655 or 00990009369991480655 worked not well at skype dial pad, however, if you dial the sip address or a USA virtual phone number of the tropo application, it worked just perfect, however, if you want to use Skype, there is a way, if the above application is No.1, then add a new application No. 2 at tropo with the below code: (callerID can be any 10 digits USA phone numbers, you can change it)

result = ask("Welcome,dail the number you wish to call", { choices:"[10 DIGITS]", timeout: 10.0, attempts:5, mode:"dtmf" }); say("Connecting you now"); transfer(result.value,{callerID:"3175221000", playvalue: "", terminator: "*" });
Then get a USA virtual number at your Tropo app No.1, use your skype call this skype voice number of app No.2, when prompt, enter the USA virtual number at Tropo app 1, the USA virtual number, when prompt, then you can enter the international number to call. It works.

If it is too hard for you, then use Teleku instead of Tropo, click here.
