SkypeIn numbers are sold on a subscription basis:
a 12 month subscription is Ä 30 and 3 months is Ä 10.
.... a low cost way to make calls from Skype to friends who still use those traditional landlines or mobile phones. That means calling anyone, anywhere in the world at local rates. .... you can save up to 56% per minute compared with AT&T CallVantageSM. .... select the amount of credit you wish to add and make the payment with any major credit card. Switch back to Skype, enter a phone number, hit the big, green phone button and start talking. Thatís all there is to it. When you run out of credits, itís just a quick trip back to the account page to top up and youíre good to go again.

Hello there: I have Skype and very often talk to a friend in Brooklyn (I am in South Carolina) sometimes as long as 3 hours and the service is excellent and the clarity excellent also. Yes, you do need dsl and whomever you talk to must have Skype also. Have not talked to any one overseas so cannot vouch for that.
Has anyone looked into this company and how good the phone service works??

It is my understanding that you do have to establish credit if you are calling anyone overseas who does not have Skype. In other words they have a regular land line. It is still extremely cheap though.
I think it was only free when calling someone else using Skype. (Like the free walkie talkie feature on Nextel phones) Otherwise there is a fee as you stated. I do not have high speed internet so I cannot use it anyway, but, I did wonder about it and have not had time to investigate further.
Thanks for your input tg1911
