All-You-Can-Eat Local and International Calls from Your Windows Mobile Device
Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC News" @ 06:45 AM
Skype has just launched new subscriptions for all-you-can-eat, local and international calls to landlines and some mobiles, effectively replacing the old Skype Pro, which offered all-you-can-eat calls within the US and Canada only. So, here's how the new model works. There are basically three types of subscriptions: one which covers calls within your country, one which covers calls within your region, and one which covers calls worldwide. Calls can be made 24/7 for a single, monthly flat rate with no connection fees. And to put the icing on the cake, the subscriptions come with one or more online numbers, voicemail, and access to Skype To Go.
What's the catch? For the most part, all-you-can-eat equates to 10,000 minutes per month, but that's more than enough for the average person. And what's the point? Some telcos in some countries charge through the roof for local and international calls, so you have the potential to save big here, especially if Wi-Fi is ubiquitous in your area. Of course, Skype is available for Windows Mobile, which would make your subscription pocketable. Any buyers?
