Heard of the new freedom you can enjoy with Skype’s Specials? They now offer you unlimited calls (i.e., “subscriptions”) to landlines in 34 countries worldwide that cost a mere $12.95/month! (If you see rates of a country not of yours, scroll down to the drop-down menu at the bottom and select your country to see your specific rates.) And that package even includes a landline phone number in your country plus a voice box (called “SkypeIn”.)
That’s awesome! Imagine someone is calling you at a phone number in the US (or many other countries) but you are at the beach in Brazil—and the caller even doesn’t know where you are—how cool is that! You can receive calls for free while being logged in to their messenger, or you can use call forwarding and receive calls wherever you are to very low rates.
Or you talk with someone for hours and hours without looking at the watch and worrying about the cost. But even if you call someone in a country that is not one of the 34—or when taking advantage of call forwarding mentioned above—the minute rates are really reasonable (they call it “SkypeOut rates”.)
Besides, the voice quality in Skype is the best I ever came across. Skype-to-Skype calls are crystal clear, it is as if your partner is sitting in the room next door, even if s/he is in reality thousands of miles away. This is what impresses me the most.
Skype keeps getting cooler and cooler with its amazing specials. :-)

Nice offer, but I hardly talk to anyone else beside my Darling. -_-
In that particular case, Deimos, you don’t need Skype. In fact, you may not even need the Internet. ;-)
[In fact, you may not even need the Internet. ;-)]
Aduh! I don’t talk physically, but I reply emails, use instant messengers, etc. :D
Most importantly, I blog! I still need the internet! Duh! :D
now you can save save 33% off the already low-priced Unlimited Dialing to Landlines at Skype. For every two months of service purchased, you’ll get a third additional month for free.
At this rate, we may speak about Skype as THE method for phone calls in the future. Perhaps my grandchildren will only use the phrase, “Skype me” instead of “call me”.
I’ve been using Skype for almost a decade already and it’s amazing how they have kept their voice quality as clear as everyone says it is, just like talking to someone in the next room.
What I don’t get is why other similar services (YM video calls, for example) cannot approximate Skype’s voice & transmission quality, regardless of how many subscribers each one has.
Keep it up, Skype!
You know what, I found almost the same article regarding the same idea of using 3g phone to call outbound for free with wifi using skype account. Since I have the idea of calling for free, I will cut out my monthly subscription and buy a 3G phone. LOL…,
Skype is good, but I think Magic Jack Plus is much better :-)
Magic Jack Plus is awesome and surpasses Skype in almost every way.
