    I don't use it, but I used it in the past, about two years ago. Reception, back then at least, was less than optimal. But it was free.

    I signed up and use it to talk to my grandchildren, ages 8 and 4. They live about 2200 miles away. I am careful not to try to do it very often, because I want it to remain exciting and not boring. They love it when we do get on together. I watched them open the Christmas gifts that we sent to them. So sweet.

    I don't know anything about skyping. Do you use the webcam for this? We use a webcam from time to time. What do you do to skype?

    Skype is sort of like msn, you need a camera and mic, (though you can chat as well) and it is a free download that you just download and install and sign up for, then you can add family and friends to video live with, and it is free, you can voice only and or video as well,

    When I used it, we just talked on the phone... I think. No camera, definitely, though that was an option.

    I know a few of our European quilters use it.
    I have it downloaded on this little lappie but haven't used it as of yet.
