    Why do I get the error "Skype Credit Needed"?

    Back to search results

    When making a call using your Skype minutes, you might get the error "Skype Credit Needed". You will get this error if you don’t have an active subscription or Skype Credit, or if you try to call a country that isn't supported by your current subscription.

    You can verify which countries are available to call if you have a Skype subscription or Skype minutes from an Office 365 subscription.

    No emergency calls with Skype
    Skype is not a replacement for your telephone and can't be used for emergency calling
