    I just got a 1 Month Subscription for $3 just to test it out for the hell of it.

    -Works on the iPhone 3G.
    -Can use it with video on your home computer.
    -$3/month for US and Canada Subscription. Cheaper if you pay by bigger intervals (ie 6 months
    -You can buy Skype credits if you don't want a subscription.
    -Free Skype to Skype Calls.
    -Cheaper and easier to set-up than Vonage.

    -No emergency number dialing like 911.
    -Can only use it with Wifi.
    -Not the best sound quality.
    -It affects internet bandwidth, to an extent.
    -Having your own internet phone number is extra.

    Skype seems like it'd be best for (these are people who use Skype SOLELY, no AT&T):

    -Stay at home/Work from home people.
    -Students that are broke as **** but have internet.

    Best of all, you can just buy a $3 subscription to test drive it for a month.

    Anyone got more info to add?
