    I have not used it in a while. I keep it on the desktop (just in case). It has always worked well for me.

    I haven't had the chance (or the need) to use it yet! It sounds interesting enough though!

    I'm using skype, the software rocks

    I've been using it nearly every day since i found out about it 2 months ago, never had a problem, cystal clear sound all over the world, and it doesn't seem to effect my bandwidth at all!

    I use skype to talk to my friend while playing online games, and my pings remain low and uneffected by the voice chat.

    It's the best in it's field and i hope it remains on top for ever

    If anyone wants my skype, PM me, because i ain't going to give my skype to just anyone

    I've used skype 3-4 times. Find its better quality and less interruptions/breaks when u dont do anything else that occupies bandwith (on a 32-45KB/sec connection with 5-8 KB/sec transfer).
    Woks fine for me, no interruptions

    I believe you can:

    Conference call

    Talking on Skype is more than just 1-on-1. You can make conference calls with up to four other people, and you can all talk to each other at the same time.
