Wasn't Skype bought by eBay?
I've tried it myself and it works. Pretty cool how you can do that now. I don't think they can call you back though (and it's a really weird number too, if the other guy has caller ID).
yeah ...skype is the best VoIP so far. clarity is the best.
Skype is totally fantastic - it saved me a fortune when I was living in Canada because it meant I could phone home for free. We used to meet up and chat over Skype for hours, which would've been difficult otherwise. Definately one of the best VoIP programs going right now.
Skype is now banned in Burma. Can't sign in to skype anymore. Is there another way to bypass this ban? Can we go through a different proxy or something like that?
And i totaly dissagree about skype being the best. "Gizmo" is the next big thing. The options that they give with calling are fantastic.
Free U.S. based telephone number assigned to your computer and any phone
Dual Ring - Incoming calls simultaneously ring computer and regular phone*
Call Screening - Listen to callers leave messages in real time (press 1 to take the call)
Transfer Calls - You can transfer any call to any phone by pressing 2
Voicemail (email and phone)
...and much more. I would right a few mor elines, but i don't want to flood. Read yourself. The point is that gizmo is more "call-oriented" than skype, thus is better than skype.
So how does Skype really work?
It seems skype call charges have gone up
Skype charges didn't gone up. But my question is, will free calls be really stopped at the end of 2006?
Good for guyess like me.. too... who has some contact in US... can make some free calls to them :p
You can make cheap VOIP calls from Yahoo Messenger.
Yeah I'm using skype too. it's cheaper than using a normal phone call back to my home country. (only 0.1cent/min is very cheap) problem is my connection is not that good and sometime i got a quality problem but over all is great. really recommended.
For me skype is only cheaper during day and the "normal" phones. If it's night/weekend or if I'm calling the mobile phones it's a LOT more expensive. I can call the mobile phones for 18 cents per minute, while skype costs 26 cents per minute.
During the day skype is 0.9 cent per minute cheaper... That's not really worth it I guess...
I don't understand why anyone would use skype... You need a normal phone to get called and to be able to have (A)DSL anyway, so why not use that to make cheaper calls?
I must admit that our phone abbonnement isn't the cheapest possible, but it does save money to use that phone instead of skype.
Is the free calling applicable to countries other than the US and canada?
I don't even use my phone anymore. It just sits there and collects dust. I thus have no use for Skype.
