    Skype telephone numbers on new threads?

    Some new threads on this site seem to have skype telephone numbers on them. Can someone tell me more about Skype? How do you pay for this service? What are your experiences with skype?

    I use Skype. I've used PayPal to pay for my service with them. My experience with Skype has been very good. The sound quality is good (I use an external Skype phone and not the Skype software). I use it as an extra phone to my cellphone (although my Skype phone is not capable of receiving external phone calls only Skype calls because Skype doesn't have any local Canadian numbers).

    Skype

    I've download skype and then paid $10 for outcalling last year in August. (called "skype out") They deduct 2 cents per minute from your skype account regardless of where you call. I'm not even a third way through my $10 and I call long distance fairly often. I also bought a mouse/phone which makes things really convienient. The sound quality is just like a land line. Clear. Skype to another Skype is free of charge.

    The only downside is that you can't recieve calls to your skype or "skype-in" because of CRTC regulations in Canada. Otherwise if you live almost anywhere in the world, you can recieve calls to your computer.

    The only thing Skype can do for a Canadian is to have in coming calls be directed to your cell phone.

    I do use Skype and agree with others: it's good.

    But... What do you mean by "Skype telephone number in them"? How do you know they are Skype numbers? And considering Skype doesn't offer Canadian incoming numbers, how would threads here benefit of out-of-country Skype numbers? What would be the point of advertizing a local service if the customer have to call an international number? And besides advertisers, I don't think anybody displays any phone numbers here?

    Or, if you have the Skype add-on on your browser, any phone numbers on any web page will be displayed in a Skype box. This doesn't mean it's a Skype number, only that it's possible to have Skype dial this number directly from the web page.

    Or we don't understand what you're saying?

    Can you have a confidential number when you have Skype.

    Are all numbers confidential or do I have to dial *69 first.

    I don't believe that *69 works on Skype. I pay per month for unlimited outgoing calls to Canada and the US and when I call people, the number that appears on their call display is a fake phone number such as "012 345-6789" or another number which is obviously fake. When I try to call *69 from my Skype phone, it doesn't work but then again my Skype account subscription doesn't come with a receiving Skype phone number (SkypeIn).
