No need for a Visualforce page. There's a free package from Skype on the AppExchange: http://sites.force.com/appexchange/listingDetail?listingId=a0N300000016cXYEAY

 

From Help:

Skype Auto Dialer Integration

This formula creates a linkable phone number field that automatically dials the phone number via the Skype VOIP phone application. It requires installation of the Skype application (a third-party product not provided by salesforce.com) on your desktop.

Hello jlo,

       I did not get the solution you have given here. I have the same requirement. I have a VF page where i am fatching the list of contact numbers (Mobile, Phone) from contact object. Can i directly put this formula directly on vf page without installing the App from AppExchange?? 

I tried this s follows but it is not working :

<a name="SkypeAutoDialerIntegrationCode" target="_blank" title="SkypeAutoDialerIntegrationCode"rel="nofollow">
<apex:column value="{!con.Phone}" /></a>

Thanks
Shephali
