If you prefer talking over typing then Skype is a perfect solution. You can talk to anyone else who has Skype for free but will have to pay to talk to people on landlines or cell phones. If you are going to pay to call someone using Skype I recommend getting the mobile app so you can use it like a phone rather than have to be stuck to your computer.

The only downsides are the dropped conversations it has at times as well as the cutting in and out of the conversations you have with others

Still for a free service that has a way for you to talk while moving around for free, there really isn't much to complain about. If you have a mobile device compatible with Skype Mobile, I recommend using it over the computer version for more flexibility.

Pros
  • Video And Voice Chat
  • Free Skype To Skype Calls
  • Free
Cons
  • Dropped Conversations At Times
  • Conversations Cut In and Out At Times
  • Costs To Call Landlines And Mobile Devices
