Does Anyone Here use Skype?

We could have one big conference call....

I talk to Australia and China all the time for free.

I installed the software and made a call to their test phone#. It sounded just fine. I asked my brother and a friend if they could install it since I don't have a cell phone but they haven't yet. They have cell phones with lot's of minutes so they are not motivated enough.

I have used it, but need a better mic for my laptop.

Re: Does Anyone Here use Skype?

I've been using Skype for quite awhile. It works great me as a complement to my cell phone. I use it to call others on computers for free. I also deposit 10 euros or so once in awhile (SkypeOut). This allows me to call land line or cell phones. I use the SkypeOut when my cell minutes are running low and for international calls. It's a bargain, works well, and doesn't require any monthly charges or contract. THe software is high quality, easy to use, and includes a good IM client.

Re: Does Anyone Here use Skype?

For the last 6 months I have been using SkypeOut for all my long distance and international calls. No problems so far.
