- Tell me about Skype Phone
Friend in New Zealand says we should get Skype Phone to get cheap calls to them. How does it differ from normal free Skype where, in my experience, you get poor sound quality, laggy pictures and have to sit in front of a laptop shouting.
Do you need any special equipment?Posted 4 years ago
android, iOS and Windows Phone all have Skype apps so you can pretty much use it like a normal phone if you don’t want to see the person you are talking to and even then if your phone has a forward facing camera you can video call as well.
On a good data connection you will be fine. Mrs Danny talks to her brother in Australia all the time on itPosted 4 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
Can’t add anything to that, appart from we had a BT VOIP (voice over IP, those ones that come with the home hubs if you get them as a bundle) phone at uni for calling abroad (brazilian and NZ housemates), worked out to be cheeper than Skype.
The downside is they’re quite expensive to call into from a normal phone apparently, so we had 2 phones, the VOIP for calling out and the normal landline.
Does the same job as an android handset and the skype app conncected to Wi-Fi though, without the benifit of being able to use it over mobile data as well.Posted 4 years ago
