  1. It was free for one day. Skype charges 0.2 USD for every minutes of calls to Iran. It’s shame as it was very helpful to be in touch with loved ones when internet in n the country is down. These sort of money is peanuts for Microsoft. However I guess money talks always even negligible money for Microsoft.

  2. It is not free anymore. It would be a great help if they could atleast make it cheaper than what it is now, or some generous bundles perhaps.

  3. Skype was free just for a day .Such a shame. It’s all about money. It seems to me like advertisements and taking advantage of Iran’s situation as they know Iranians have to call their families in Iran directly . Why should I use Skype and pay £0.18 per minute when I can use White Calling App and pay £0.12 .

  4. Joke !!!
    I am pretty sure Microsoft helps Islamic government !!!
    They will not help Iranian people!!!
    They are all the same
    Poor people loose their rights every seconds and still politicians deals with each other and make fortunes for themselves

  5. Such a shameful move by Skype to make this free for only one day. I paid by credit one day before the announcement and yesterday it was free but it charged my credit and today there is no option at all to call for free.

  6. Thanks for the 1 day !!!! But was the point of that apart from Skype self advertisement out of the misery of the Iranian ppl?
    Shame !!!!

  7. Skype only did it for publicity. It was free only for one day and they made heaps of money from people using skype. Shame on them.

  8. Skype wanted to advertise itself to media only, they didn’t have intention to help iraniran around the world to keep in touch with their loved ones while Internet is down in Iran.

  9. Making it free for one day – it was a publicity stunt by Skype to advertise their service for calling landlines and cell phones in Iran.
