Can I call an emergency number from Skype?

Skype Software is not a replacement for your ordinary mobile or fixed line telephone. In particular, apart from in very limited circumstances, the Software does not allow you to make emergency calls to emergency services. You must make alternative communication arrangements to ensure you can make emergency calls if necessary.

For further information, read Skype’s Terms of Use.
