Question Skype Calls / Skype Numbers allowed or not?

Just researching Skype calls and I was wondering if they are considered three-way or not?
My man can basically call all numbers and we're trying to make it ever cheaper (so far my SIM is in-state but still long-distance).
Thanks!

Most states and federal consider Skype to be call forwarding to it's not allowed. If it's detected your loved one could get into trouble. However the Skype app does not involve call forwarding so it's a gray area it's whether you and he are willing to take the risk.

It depends on each prison system's phone rules. Some members who live in Europe have posted that Skype is being introduced at some US federal prisons, with more to come, and it significantly reduced the cost of their international calls.
