Free phoning

Since most of you guys spend a hell of a lot of time in front of your computer screens (like me) why not make free calls at the same time to friends & family and why not business calls as well

down load from www.skype.com and follow the instructions

I must say it is great and now only make my business calls abroad that way
and since I make quite a lot my target for my next bill for overseas calls is
£0.00

I had filed this under the "too good to be true" or "Whats the catch" headings but rereading both the site and your comments mebbe I should give it a go. Could prove extremely useful from Nov 17th this year!

I shall try it.

Last time was about 2 years ago and there was a delay and echo.

Sounds like they have sorted it out.

Cheers

Just thought I would bring this thread back to life again and find out if anybody has taken advantage of this free phoning.

I ,like probably most of you, get a lot of calls nearly every day from telephone companies trying to sell me the BEST DEAL around. Well so far they have not been able to beat skype

Alan, I now know what you meant by 17th Nov and don't tell me you have still got it filed under "Too good to be true"

Andre,

Its brilliant and I cant thank you enough for bringing it to my attention! We have family and friends signed up on it and use it almost every day. Even the Skypeout service where you buy credit for phonecalls to landlines is a massive saving over transatlantic telephone rates (some 80% cheaper than our telephone service!)

It still seems to good to be true but it works and works well!

Cheers,
Alan

I signed up on Alan (and Andre's) say so.
Absolutely correct. It is free and there isnt a catch.

The only tiny-tiny drawback is, that I have been getting spam or junk calls.
This is easily fixed' initially I barred "X" from calling. But even easier, I made myself "invisible" to the spammers by checking the appropriate menu item.
To be double-sure, I have created a list of other Skypers who I am permitting to call me and only those get through.

So, if you think you are worthy..............
