I happened to be surfing around and downloaded Skype the other day. Anyway, if you make lots of phone calls, here's the scoop on skype in this neck of the woods:
[b]Calling regular phone numbers.[/b]
You can make free calls within the US and Canada to both landlines and mobile phones until the end of the year. It's really easy; there are no contract fees, no line rentals. All you need is Skype and a phone number you want to call.
If that wasn't enough, we have a little thing called SkypeOut which lets you make international calls to old-fashioned phone numbers. From landlines to mobile phones... it works with almost all of them. SkypeOut calls abroad are not free, but they?re pretty cheap, actually. Please read our Terms of Service regarding using this product.
If you want to give it a try, here is their download page:
If you aren't using skype, are you using any other Internet telephone technologies (not plain chat)?
