Does anyone use Skype?

(1/3) > >>

Cliff:
You can make calls for free to anyone in the world and even leave/send voicemail messages and have conference calls.

heartforyou:
I do Cliff.

You can also do video calls on it.

Works pretty well, but best with high speed internet connections.

Cliff:
Thanks!  Question:

When you talk on the phone, is there a lag or echo or is the quality almost as similar as making calls from a land-line phone?

Markmt:
I use skype Cliff. Generally speaking its better then say yahoo or msn for voice chat. There can be a little delay (depending on the network),but most of the time it really works well. I never experienced echo.. 

penguin:
Cliff,

the calls are only free to other people who also have skype..otherwise you have to pay, although it is a bit cheaper than regular landline rates.

I found that the sound quality varied; some days it was really clear, just like a landline. Other days, for whatever reason, the line was terrible, lots of interference etc. But for a free call, i guess it might be worth sacrificing brilliant sound quality!
