This sounds like a problem with your actual Skype account and not your physical phone. You can use Skype normally, but "Skype Out" (calling land lines) costs money, and the system doesn't seem to think you have any credit on your account.
1) Check your configuration on the phone and double check the Skype account username is the one you have credit on.
2) Login to Skype on a computer with the same account. Call someone's land line and confirm a call can connect.
If you can't connect to a land line there (but your Skype account shows you have credit), contact Skype support - there's something wrong on their end that they will have to fix.
If you can connect just fine, try clearing and resetting the user account settings on the phone. If it still doesn't work, try connecting it to a different network (go to Starbucks and use their wifi or something).
VoIP phones can do this, but there are obsticles in keeping your phone numbers and forwarding to your cell phone or you can call your phone provider and get them to twin your number to your cell phone.
First the VoIP phone home base station will be in Canada... meaning that you can get transfered calls to you VoIP phone anywhere in the world so long as you have a high speed internet connection.
When you call out on the VoIP set, you will be using the Canadian dial tone, making all your calls long distance if you are in a different area code.
So 2 phones maybe required if you want to call locally in America.
Your 911 calling will have to reflect your address in America, or you need to have a big sticker telling the customer no 911 calling because the outbound number will be coming from Canada, not the US where you are located.
The only thing with this particular phone is that if you have a monthly account (skype pro) and you use your package as your regular phone you need to add every phone number you call to your contact list.
I haven't found a soloution to dial out from the phone using skype with out it being in the contacts list.
