3: Three times as much Skype for free

No primary category set

3 Mobile have increased the free Skype calls on PAYG Skypephones as I discovered yesterday with my latest top up. Previously a £10 top up would get you a months free usage of Skype, but that has been increased to 90 days so I’m good to go until the middle of December.

I use the Skypephone as a secondary handset as I still have a Vodafone contract, but it’s invaluable for Skype calls/chats when out and about and a very cost effective way to access the Internet. Increasing the Skype cover to 90 days for each top up is a smart move and can only make the phone more attractive.

  1. Hi , i use my mobile phone contract and bt landline ,can you please explain the benifits of skypephone and is the call quality as good as former mentioned.

  2. Basically the Skypephone works like any other mobile phone. Even Skype is available on a lot of 3G mobile handsets but the Skypephone gives you access to Skype but not using your 3G data allowance – the calls really are free….

    …or at least Skype to Skype calls are free, but if I have a customer click the Skype button from one of my eBay listings my Skypephone rings and for that alone it’s invaluable and has got me sales. I can use Skype without being at my PC
