Skype.com

I have it downloaded on all our school phones in my building and my home phone. You can place long distance phone calls (used to be from computer to computer, but apparantly now it's open to phones!) totally free and it's as clear as a bell. Also can use a web cam as well. It's really cool!

Skype is IP telephony. Kind of like Vonage, but you use the net instead of an adapter to connect. It used to be great for free long distance calls to other Skype users, but apparently now you can call non-Skype users for free.

Yup - we've been waiting for them to do this for awhile. There are over 2 million people in the world that use it (according to their statistics) and a lot of people in the US - the last time something like this happened, they were shut down in a hurry! I think they would have been better off staying in the computer to computer biz, and not going to phones....

What's the matter with blue huh?

And hopefully they won't shut down Skype....that'd be lame.
Also, Skpye itself said it would only do free calls until the end of the year. Maybe that will allow them to get away with it......
