There is no home phone. Access is horrible. I hate it. We tried to have a line installed last Christmas, but honestly, service is so terrible, more times than not you cannot get through. Argh!

If you can use it with a phone, maybe I will look into it again. Would I have to have internet service to use it?

Oh, okay, no home phone on their end means no Skype. It is just another way for you to call to a landline or mobile. But you need Internet to make the call, you know? You need the Internet, to download Skype, and to put money on that account from a credit card or paypal.

They don't need it to receive the call. To them it will just be like any other call coming to their mobile or home phone.

If your local Internet cafe has Skype, you can just open your own account online and then login whenever you are there, even using your account. But don't forget to log out!

Hmmm, I think this sounds like something I need to do more investigation on. It sure would be nice to call them more often.

If you have your own computer or have access at a university lab that allows downloads, you should easily be able to get Skype. Skype.com. Believe me I don't work for them, it has just been a godsend for our own family. Also if they do have access to a net cafe at all, you can use it for video calls (for free!).
