    I've got a Windows Mobile 10 phone (Lumia 950). I've known that it is possible to do a Skype call, with or without video, between one WP phone and another, but I've never done it. Been thinking of trying it out. What I'd like to know is what are the impact upon the data plans, etc.? I'm sure it cost something, but is it an additional charge from Microsoft? Or is it free between 2 people both using WP phones? (Except for one's data charges, of course, from one's data carrier.) Is there some restriction, like maybe only 1 hour a month?

    Anyone on any carrier can make a Skype call as long as they have a data connection or WiFi connection. The call will consume data as it is VoiP. Audio calls will consume much less than video calls. There are no extra charges other than the data consumption with your carrier unless your on WiFi and then its totally free.

    to use Skype is free, and it only needs some mobile traffic. So just check it from your setting. And when it connects with wifi, it is all free.
