I believe it stays the same. No official announcement for such (yet).Brah wrote:A friend from the States said that Skype is now charging - anyone heard this?
AFIK, they only charge if you choose to contact a landline or mobile phone, not Skype to Skype.
I don't understand people who try to escape minimalist charges for good service. Outbound Skype to most phones is around 2 to 3 cents a minute... OK... Philippines and other rip off countries go as high as 30. But, talk for an hour to USA for $1.80? What's the issue?Brah wrote:Thanks for the link Lynx, I forwarded it to him.
This particular friend said he has an iPhone and Mac, and seems to think it will cost for him.
He asked me to use http://www.oovoo.com/home.aspx , so I've downloaded it, but I don't like having multiple apps and accounts for these things.
Anyone heard of oovoo?
As it's night time in Chicago, will see how he responds tomorrow.
Exactly my thoughts, which is why with such low prices I don't even look at what the competition is offering (even if it were for free) simply because Skype gets the job done perfectly.Strong Eagle wrote:I don't understand people who try to escape minimalist charges for good service.
Why f*ck around with all these alternatives when simplicity is found for such a cheap price?
It's actually rather pricey for some calling destinations. For example, Vietnam used to be 39 cents a minute unless you bought it in large blocks of time that expired monthly. That would get it down to about 9 cents a minute. But then Google Voice only charges about 10 cents with no restrictions.aster wrote: Exactly my thoughts, which is why with such low prices I don't even look at what the competition is offering (even if it were for free) simply because Skype gets the job done perfectly.
