  1. 1
    To get started, turn the phone on by pressing the power button on the right-hand side of the phone.
    This will bring up the lock screen.

    Find and press the Skype tile to open the application.
    We can see the tile near the middle of the screen on this device. It has a blue background with the Skype logo in the middle. If the Skype tile is not pinned to the home screen, swipe left and find it in the apps menu. We want to demonstrate how to manually call a phone number using this application. It's very simple.

    The first thing we need to do is choose the country code.
    In this example, it's set to "United States (+1)". If we want to change that, we can press on that and a list of countries with their country codes will appear.

    We now need to enter a phone number.
    We will not be entering a real phone number because we don't know anyone in Australia.

    Once we press that, it will start ringing.
    If we had a real number, it would allow us to call it. One of the advantages of using Skype for phone calls is the low rates they have. We might find that it's actually cheaper for us to use Skype to call internationally than it is for us to use our standard mobile phone network.
