    What is the price for calls through MobiGater?

    The price for a MobiGater call is a sum of the price for the call between your SIM cards (the one in the device and the one in your mobile phone) and the price for a Skype call. The last is free or very cheap. Therefore, we recommend you to choose for your SIM cards a subscription plan offering free or cheap calls too. The cheaper the calls between your two SIM cards - the bigger cost-savings from MobiGater.

    Is there some time limit in using MobiGater?

    MobiGater does not impose any time limits itself. If you can use your SIM cards (the one in the device and in your mobile phone) and your Skype without time limits, then there are no time limits in using MobiGater either.
