SKYPE - free phone calls?

Did a search and found one mention of this, but no discussion. Are any of you currently using this service? If yes, I would appreciate your feedback, opinions, etc.

Skype is ok. I used once or twice...but it was over a Cellular based WiFi and it sucked.

I haven't used their service yet, but they must be doing something right. They're growing incredibly fast, and it was announced in September that eBay acquired them for big buck$.

Re: SKYPE - free phone calls?

Im pretty sure my bad experience was due to the connection I was using, I did have a friend in Lebanon use it to call me and she sounded like she was on a cell phone, so not to bad. I think she said it was Skype she was using..if you want a VoIP soultion why not look into Vonage?

I talk to my brother, who lives in Tokyo on Skype, everyday, and it's like he's still here with us. Sound quality is like a cell phone but for free! In the new beta there is a webcam feature. Video is fast and large, framerate is smooth.

We use it with Plantronics DSP 400 Digital USB headset and it works GREAT.
My boss thought his boss was standing behind him it was so clear.

Re: SKYPE - free phone calls?

Yeah you can "call" other skype members for free. Big deal, MSN Messenger has had this feature for the past forever.

You can however call regular telephone lines for extremely cheap.
