So far I’ve only placed a test call to the Skype answering machine, but the utility included with the software did manage to locate four people I know from my Outlook address book so maybe I’ll see them online soon. My ID is adoran2 if you want to give me a call!
Installed Skype today – looks like a great service and seems to work very well with a bluetooth headset. It allows you to chat and call other Skype users, much like an instant messenger. However, there’s also a feature included that lets you make extremely cheap phone calls to foreign countries where you pay the same rate no matter where you are! You can even pay for a ‘real’ number in any of a number of countries, such as the UK, US or Finland, and have the calls routed to your desktop or Skype voicemail.
