Yes, Skype is free if you're calling other Skype users. It costs money to call regular phone numbers.

Please be sure to start new topics rather than reply to existing unrelated topics when posting to Info-Mac. Thanks!
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.

It should be mentioned that Skype's rate for VOIP to "real phones" is ridiculously cheap: with prepaid it's like six cents a minute across North America, and there are plans with unlimited calling across NA for $30/year.

More info can of course be found at Skype's website.

Yeah, Skype is free for YOU, but it might not be for your friends.

It's all voice over internet protocol. You get charged if you call someone's normal non-Skype phone number.
