    Skype Free Period is Nearing End

    Free call within the U.S. and Canada come to an end on Dec 31. In the future you can get unlimited calls for $30 a year. If you sign up before Dec 31 it will cost $14.95.

    Computer to computer call will remain free.

    This is a real bargain. I have used Skype for my long distance calls for nearly a year. The calls are crystal clear and inexpensive.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Does Skype work with 911 calls as well as it does with your normal US-Canada calls as far as you know?

    Do you still keep a landline phone in case your computer happens to be down?

    I've created my own website...a collection of moving, sad and happy and humorous poems which I would like to share with others. They come from stories my dad used to tell me when I was a kid. If you could glance at my site and if you know of others who might enjoy it and perhaps tell them of it, I would be most appreciative. Thank you.

    Skype is not a replacement for the land line and does not work with 911. It is a replacement for your long distance carrier. Mine charges 5.5 cents a minute for U.S. long distance. Even before the one time charge for unlimited long distance with a call via Skype was 2.1 cents a minute.

    I have to keep my land line for another reason. I have a DSL internet connection.
