    So i just got myself a Skype phone and was just wandering, do I have to purchase an online number to be able to make and receive calls from other Skype phones or can you make them and receive them with your username you created.

    Cheers

    Skype is based on Username, so you can call using other peoples usernames. You can also get a number so people can call u from landlines if u want them to.

    As crashed said you can call both usernames and landlines, but to call landlines you will have to pay for them :p
