    Can anyone answer some Skype questions? Much appreciated!

    So I didn't know where to put this, but I just wanted to get some info about Skype. I've seen a few threads where it is mentioned, and went to the website. But anyone who actually uses it, is there a charge for the service or download or anything? Also, if you can just provide some info on how well it works for you. Thank you so much!

    It doesn't cost me a thing. I love it! Sometimes the connection goes bad...but 9 times our of ten it's wonderful.. I use it just for Ims, or you can call them..or call them with a video chat which would be webcam

    Doesn't cost anything to do computer to computer calling. I use it to IM and video chat with db it works pretty well.

    You shouldn' have to pay if you both download it onto your computers. IT's free between Skype users. We used it to webcam during his deployment. The picture was never fantastic clear but it was pretty good. There were a few dropped calls, but it worked well considering he was out in the middle of nowhere. I would definitely recommend it.

    Like the others said, it's free to download and free to talk from computer to computer. I pay $2.95/month and DH can call from his computer to a cell or landline.

    If your SO needs to call a phone or what-not it could get expensive if you add minutes. My DH subscribed for 2.95/month. Now we can call comp to comp (which is free anyway), but he now has unlimited calling to all cells and landlines so he can always call me when i'm away from the house and he can call his family and such as well.

    I don't like Skype. The video quality is so choppy all the time. (well most of the time) i much prefer msn windows live instant messenger and use their video call feature. The quality is 100% live quality...there isn't any choppiness or delays...you should try it if Skype becomes a bother ...oh and yeah, both are free to call comp to comp!!
