I think Skype is a good software. As it can provide you pc-phone call in a low price. However, this morning when I tried to call to Australia. My friend often couldn't listen to me clearly, and after a while there was no sound at all. I dialed it several times but the result was the same. Finally I had to give it up. I hate to repeat the words all the time: Can you hear me?

Well, skype no doubt is a good software for pc-to-pc and one of my friend tried used skype called me from Doha, well...i can say the speed of voice is quite slow, its all depends on the area, connection and the pc speed as well. Or you can try out yahoo..

yea i have skype too. my cousin told me about this site and so we then started talking with each other back and forth. my cousin had lost her phone and now she recently kept buying the credits so she can use that as phone. she said that she also have problems hearing people when she talks to them on the phone. once when i was talking to her, i thought she would be in a bad mood because when i called her, she just suddenly stopped talking to me. i thought she hung up on me but she said it was that she had trouble hearing me through there.

In the past few months I made a PC-phone call several times, and the result was fine. Somewhat today it's so terrible.

skype's good! there are alot of mssgengers nowadays, you can do icq, yahoo, im, skype and many more. skype is good because its not that wildly popular like yahoo mssger and msn mssgengers. skype isnt complicated to use, so user friendly and has cool features to. although you might want to tell your friends who use yahoo or im to use the same, cause not all knows about skype,meaning not all use it and some are more comfortable using im and yahoo which they are used to.

Except for IM, I use other software that you mentioned. Today I don't like ICQ any more, as it's very annoying that rude people always bother you.

Using Skype to call some countries are very cheap, maybe around $0.02/minute.

yes, skype is a wonder software but I am having some troubles like you, I don't know if it is that skype is not working so good in nowadays because I remember that I never have that problem before, when I get tired to say , can you hear me? I start to send messages because there is text chat too but is very slow, I think skype have a good speed in transfer files, maybe the problems with skype are because the internet connection I think both have to be so good for make a good call, I am using now paltalk and the quality in the sound is really good, and it have some problem too but are about the text chat I never have a problem about audio with paltalk, the only problem is that is not like a call, because you need to press a button to speak, it is good because if you have few RAM, it will work really good, and you will not have problems with the audio, I think it time that a new branch skype be put, for some software company.

In fact I use ADSL connection and it's fast. When I have the skype phone talk, I even shut down other softwares so that the connection will not have an effect. So I am wondering why sometimes the skype phone result isn't good.
