Are there any hidden fees for one of the persons being overseas?? ALSO.. does anyone use Skype on there phones through Verizon. I have Skype on my BlackBerry but want to make sure I'm not getting charged extra for using it. Thanks! =)

I don't know about using it on the blackberry but my husband and I have been using Skype ever since he left for Korea. No hidden fees or anything like that. Also a little tidbit you might want to know, he can send emails from both his home and work email to your phone number and you will get them as text messages. Thats how me and my husband stay in touch.

Renae, can you give me more info on Skpe. I have heard it is good, but don't know how to go about getting it. Thanks! 

Isabel --- 7 years ago -

I Love skype! No hidden fees as long as you only use it skype to skype video calls. Its geat. If you call a landline then yes you will get charged. It does not ask for credit card numbers or anything.

Isabel, where do you go to sign up? I have a girlfriend in Sweden and she just recetly told me about it. It would save me a bundle when I talk with her & I am excited about also getting to see her & her kids :)

Christine --- 7 years ago -

Cool, do I need a special camera for the computer? 

Isabel --- 7 years ago -

you need a web cam if you want to see her and her see you or you can do a call with no video its very easy and way cool. love skype

Skype is awesome and totally free unless you specifically pay for something. This last time my hubby was deployed I purchased a skype phone number and unlimited calls from skype to any phone/cell phone for 3 months. It was no more the $20.

It crashed both mine and my sisters computers 

Christine --- 7 years ago -

Missy, were your computers older? Just trying to get all the info I can Thanks! 

Isabel --- 7 years ago -

My husband and I have been uing skype for about two years and we have never had any problems. 

Missy --- 7 years ago -

Our computers were about two years old. 

Missy --- 7 years ago -

Oh and skype to skype on the phone, if he is over seas is super expencisive 

Jezel --- 7 years ago -

yeah.. my whole family has skype. we have it on both laptops and our desktop, and we've never had problems. missy, were you able to figure out why/how it crashed your computers? when we used skype from computer to phone or vice versa while hubby was overseas, the phone number we purchased was a local US number.. with that and the unlimited calls plan, we were charged no more than $20 bucks for 3 months.
