I’ve heard about Skype phones and that you can talk over the internet for free. Does anyone know much about using them on your travels?
Is it really free? Can you use it anywhere? What would be the best pack to buy?
:?  :D :?:

Skype is well worth signing up for! Calls are amazingly cheap - I was away for about 5 1/2 months, bought £10 worth of credit before I went and still have some left now (2 years on) ... You don’t need to get a Skype phone; as long as you’re in an internet cafe at a computer that has a microphone and headphone thingy (and skype downloaded) then you’re fine.

I never used it, I prefered not to phone home :D

Loads of other travellers did, and most internet cafes have headsets and skype installed. A few people carry around there own one, but its not really necessary.
