    Skype/VoIP

    I'm going on holiday to Turkey shortly and want to call home while away. The hotel has free WiFi and I have a Skype account. Sadly my Samsung Jet doesn't support Skype for voicecalls, but I shall be taking my netbook. I understand Skype to Skype calls are free, while those to landlines or mobiles are chargeable. Can anyone please confirm for me that I will only be paying the 4p-5p connection fee plus 2p (inc VAT) per minute.

    Also, has anyone used anything like VoipStunt? They say calls to the UK are free but you need to add £10 of credit to your account to access free calls which I'm loathe to do if it doesn't work well (or at all).

    It's 3.3p connection and 1.6p/min innit??

    There are basic versions of Nimbuzz and Fring for you phone which may or may not allow you to make free calls using other supported messaging networks with your friends. Skype recently withdrew permission for Fring to use the Skype network. Or just get an IP Camera then you can spy on what the kids are doing in your house at all times of day or night without needing them to answer the phone.

    I was rounding it up and allowing for the price increase they say is coming, but just realised the date for the increase has been and gone...and I wasn't sure if I was inside or outside the Global Rate destination

    Ummmm....I'm not sure I want to know what they're getting up to , I know one of them has a poker night planned, which I guess is preferable to a wild party I guess

    Yeah, I'm sure there's nothing to worry about...
