    Ever heard of skype?

    Hey there,

    I recently learned on the news about this site called skype www.skype.com

    So with this program, I can call on other telephones for free, well, I was wondering if I could call with long distance, eg.Japan, Africa, US, you know what I mean,

    Well if you know, let me know.

    thx in advance

    LOL, my bad .... but I'd just like to add, that this is not free, you have to buy credit to use the phone, and that sucks cause I downloaded the whole thing only for the telephone abilities.

    Don't give up lankan_man. My son and I have used Skype. It was the first audio messenger type program with really good quality sound.

    You can make free calls with skype. It is not with a telephone. You use a headset with microphone. The other party also has to use the same software on his/her computer and have a free account in their network. This would be an excellent way to talk to family in distant locations.

    I don't have it on my computer at this time. If you want to try it, I will install it again. Send a PM to arrange a test.

    Skype Download

    Man where have you been all these days?

    Skype is used to make free PC to PC calls. I use it to talk to my father (he's in Boston for 2 years) every Sunday. What would have costed us upto 400 INR costs only 50 thanks to Skype (charges only levied on how much bandwidth you use)

    With a professional version you can call landline numbers or use it like an answering machine.

    I have never received spam via skype. This is a wonderful product. I have written about it several times. It is safe and it works.
