Conference calls are a network service, so they only will work within either GSM/UMTS network or within an Internet service like Skype. You cannot combine these two services.

Hi Bent,

Thank you for your reply,

correct me if I'm wrong but Skype call work on the Wifi (and not on the GSM) so technically, it is only software that prevent the conference between these two types of call.

Skype works on an Internet connection either via WLAN or 3G. Voice on mobile networks works via specific GSM/UMTS infrastructure. It is the servers at the mobile network operator and Skype, respectively, that don't talk together.

Skype calls can work without a sim card, so there is must to be a way to merge two calls such as these with 3rd party software.

It maybe is possible to merge your voice on the N900 with the voice from a Skype call using some software on the N900 and then send them via your connection into a conference call via the mobile network. I don't if developers have such access to the telephony stack of the N900.

It's not possible to have Skype and GSM calls at once, let alone combining them into a conference. I guess it would require rewritting the Phone app that manages calls to make simultaneous calls via mobile network and Skype possible. Shortly speaking, a lot of work. And as it isn't something majority of users need to use daily, I doubt if anyone would be willing to do it.

It also isn't certain if handling two calls in two different technologies (both require encoding/encrypting/decoding/decrypting voice using different algorithms) wouldn't be too 'heavy' for the processor.

Hi, guys! Sorry for the late reply, but I'm a little confused. Is everyone basically on here saying that regular phone services and skype can't be combined? How? Does this mean I can't set up a conference call on Skype and have people call in on their regular phone (or vice versa)?

Hope someone can help me out! Thanks, folks!

Hi LinuxLauren,

If you have SkypeOut credit (which allows you to dial landlines/mobiles from Skype) then it is not a problem. You can use Skype to call both Skype contacts and landline contacts.

The limitation is that you cannot for example call someone on their cell phone from the N900 using the normal GSM radio and then conference call a Skype contact into that call.

Hope this clarifies it a bit.
