You can make skype to skype calls free, people calling you on your number and you picking up on Skype is also free. For calls to mobile and landlines Skype charges a monthly fee that you can view here: https://secure.skype.com/calling-rates?language=en#

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
