    Default skype local call cost

    anyone else here use skype?
    about 2 years ago i bought some skype credit and im pretty sure each call to a local number cost 10c.
    i recently bought some more crdit and it seems local calls are now 30c.
    is this even any better than having a home phone now?

    so anyway...
    i figured this out myself, its 3c a minute. this is sh!t.
    i thought skype was 10c for as long as you like to any landline in australia.
    any alternative suggestions?
    also, any suggestions for 1300, 13 & 1800 number?

    30 cents for a local call is a ripoff, with my telstra package I get free local calls.

    It was when I used it about 5 years ago

    Telecommunications is the biggest scam ever

    I think we spend more money on it ( phone / internet ..) than food now LOL


    I kicked Skype to the curb a long ways back

    I use skype but not for making calls to landlines/mobile

    Who spends more than 5 minutes on aphone call now adays.

    Depending who you are calling there are other apps if you have a smart phone, Viber being the most popular.
