Calling Swiss cell phones from Skype

The husband and kid went to Bern yesterday for a day trip to the bear zoo. They said they'd be back around dinner time but when dinner time rolled around and I didn't hear anything, I decided to call my cellphone which I shoved on the husband as he left the house in the morning.

I used my Skype credits to call the cellphone which was pretty straightforward. And expensive. Unlike the price they charge for calls to US land lines (~$.02 per minute), Skype charged an outrageous $.36 per minute.

Guess we won't be using Skype to call Swiss cellphones from now on unless it is an emergency - like I am finally in labor.
