My wife had a "Skype Date"; talking to her sister-in-law and brother in New Jersey... she also talks to her sister in Nova Scotia.

Anyone use "Skype"?

Apparently it's free.

My wife and I use it around holidays and such to connect with her brother and his wife. THey are on the move alot. Lived in Mexico last year and are in either Denmark or Switzerland now...I forget which. Anyway, we chat with them over skype every couple months or so. It's a relatively easy and nice way to stay in touch.

Our oldest son and his family including our only grandson (soon to be 2 grandsons) moved to Dubai a year ago. I have used Skype for lots of business calling (used to work for a French company we did our conf calls on skype) so it was pretty natural for us to start using Skype to keep in touch with our son.

With video cameras built into most computers these days, we have graduated to video skype. Great fun to see our grandson growing up on the other side of the world. For him at 3 years, it is perfectly natural for him to see "Baba and Grandpa" on the computer screen. To us it is still kind of magic.

I've been a Skype user for the past couple of years. Have saved a fortune in international calls. Skype also allows computer-to-telephone calls at a ridiculously low price, even international calls. Quality has also improved substantially from the earlier days. Skype has become a very important tool, I use it almost daily.

Yes, great for international calls. Used it a lot when I was in China for several weeks.

Should mention that I was assuming you were talking about video skype...webcams are cheap and as mentioned previously, some 'puters have cameras built in these days.

I prefer it w/ video since I am not much of a talker but I am dead sexy to look at. What a Face

Yup, I use the video calling to talk to my brother in Brussels. I've talked to him more since they moved there 6 months ago than I did in the past 20 years when he lived in Houston. Laughing

I use it quite frequently. Most often, to talk with my boyfriend, who lives on the east coast. But I also use it to talk with my parents up in Michigan. They don't ever get to see their grandson, so it helps some with that.

Yeah, Skype is great. I use it to call all of my international friends on their land-lines for incredibly low rates. Even better when I convince them to also get Skype, because then it's free. You can't beat free international calls.
