Over the past couple of years, Skype has gained acceptance as one of the easiest ways to save money on long-distance phone calls, allowing users from anywhere in the world to converse for free over the internet.
This popular VoIP telephony service also allows users to make dirt cheap phone calls to landlines and mobile phones around the globe, for much less than with any traditional long-distance phone provider. The one catch, however, has all too often been that, to make or receive these calls, one must be continually tied to his or her computer.
This caveat is in the process of disappearing though, with more and more hardware manufacturers designing wireless handsets that are capable of tapping into the Skype service without a computer immediately on hand.
