Anyone here tried or even heard of this outfit, sounds a good Idea but I'm still looking for the catch...If something is free, I'm allways a little sceptical..

I wonder if it works the same as MSN Messenger, thats free, and I use it to talk and have video conversations. So don't think I will be downloading.

It really does work, the only catch is it only works for free when you call other people with skype. You can pay to be able to use it for incoming or outgoing calls to none skype users though.

yep I use it all the time to call my friends who also have skype, if you have a web cam you can video call as well. I use it to call my friends in France a lot. It is very very similar to MSN

You can try Voipbuster which is cheaper than Skype for landline connections in the UK (in Portugal - and a bunch of other countries like France, Spain, the Netherlands, etc.- it's free!). I use it and it works just fine.

PS - In the US: 1 cent per minute landline and mobile.

With Skype I can talk to my nephew who is living in New Zealand (I live in The Netherlands) if he's sitting in the room next to me.

Both Mark and I use it too, as do Raywiz (remember him), Sheila and Scaley. If anyone wants my ID then send me a PM.
