This is actualy strange as i made a phone call from skype using my ipad to my house phone and it worked. I tried it again then it said i need skype credits to make a call. So i have not used it since and i thought it was kinda strange asking for credits.

Dl the whistle app :) free calls to anyone in the U.S, it just periodically plays a short ad. Pretty awesome tho!

Whistle is pretty good and listening to a 15 second advertisement isn't bad.

Skype works great. You need to purchase credits if you're going to make calls to someone other than a Skype user. I am in Japan for business and calling to my home phone in the US is $0.02 per minute. Cheap enough and vastly cheaper than cell phone or hotel rates.

I use Skype a lot, and the only problem that I have is that u turn skype on, u sign in, u make a call then u wait for someone to call u, but while u wait u can't do anything else because if u press the home button it exits u out of skype. Skype rlly needs to make it to run in the background or something. U guys getting my point? Hope I made sense.

Exactly. For now you can only make calls because you're not available to others as you're off doing something else...
