Skype? :/ - December 31st 2018, 02:13 AM

I donít have Skype and wanted to know if the calls or messages I made on it would show up on the phone bill. I obviously wouldnít expect to pay for it, Iím just wondering before I download it.

I know for me personally when I use Skype it uses internet or my data. If I don’t have wifi, it will use my allotted data. My cell company doesn’t show what I do to use the data but rather it just shows how many gigabytes I used! I don’t even think I have my cell phone number attached to my skype account.

So to be clear Skype or who I contacted on Skype wouldnít show up on my bill? Sorry, just trying to clarify 😅

I’ve never had Skype show up on my bill! It’s not even connected, I don’t think.

It shouldn’t! I know that I’ve had Skype for years and it has never physically showed up that I use it or anything on my cell phone bill. The only thing that it shows is how much data I use per day (not what I use it on). I just checked and my phone number isn’t even attached to my account. If you’re worried, you can always contact your provider and clarify or even contact Skype.

It seems to me that Skype has long gone.. I like Discord more.
