I downloaded it about two years ago when I heard that it was taking the world by storm, and I thought it was really cool, but then they started charging for SkypeOut, so I stopped using it (which wasn't much before then), and all my friends are on AIM for chat anyways. I'm getting more interested in it now (especially after our $2400 at&t bill.) I tried buying some credit tonight, but it wouldn't let me. I hope somebody develops a client for it when the iPhone's software goes open in February. I also wish iChat was compatible with Skype. I want my family to use it the next time we go internationally on our E61 (or iPhones, fingers crossed.) Do you use Skype? For what purpose? How often?
