It still seems to good to be true but it works and works well!
Alan, pleased to have been of service
the beauty of this syetm is also the fact that you can have a 3-4 way conversation which you can't have on a normal line AND IT IS FREE if computer to computer
I think I have said this before but no harm in repeating

Brian , as for any spam well I have been using Skype since October 04 and have not had this problem. Perhaps on a few occasions somebody called but as I did not recognize the username I did not authorise the call and was not bothered again
One of our girls in the Polish office made a mistake in posting her photo and this resulted in lots of calls from her so called "Skype fan club" so she promptly removed the photo.
Best not to put any telephone numbers or addresses or photos in the profile.
Todate I have saved a bomb on overseas and national calls
