SKYPE is now one of the worst bogus BAIT AND SWITCH VOIP providers out there. Their plans are rip-off paradise. They "OFFER" UNLIMITED VOIP usage with their basic subscription - but get this, in tiny letters there's a "Fair Usage Policy" note at the bottom with SEVERE restrictions on their so-called unlimited plans! You are LIMITED to 50 calls a day! NOT ONLY THAT, but if you charge this online, your bank activity will show additional INTERNATIONAL TRANSACTION FEES related to your subscription! WOW WHAT A RACKET! BOYCOTT SKYPE - HUMONGOUS RIPOFF FRAUDSTERS! - Fed up in Los Angeles, YAY MAGIC JACK!

I just skimmed it real quick and saw the fair usage policy mentioned. Perhaps read through the terms of service closer, especially if this is for your business?

RE: 50 call limit

AUTHOR: Bogused In L.a. - (U.S.A.)

Yes, generally 50 calls a day would suffice for home/personal use, but if you are using SKYPE to do even modest telemarketing (which is what I was doing - certainly not 100 calls a day even), you can easily exceed 50 calls a day.

Not severe restrictions

I don't think I'd call limiting you to '50' calls day a severe limitation.
