Skype App

iPhone Skype App Helped me Save $18.05 a Month; Here is How

If you are not already aware there is a free app called Skype that is a VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) that allows you to make calls while in wifi range and not use your regular minutes. By using Skype while I am at home or in a wifi hot spot I was able to reduce my plan with AT&T by $20.00 a month and sign up for the monthly unlimited Skype plan for only 1.95 a month. They do have other plans that range in price and calling area. For now you can only use the app in wifi but since AT&T has authorized VOIP to use data I am hoping that this app will soon be able to be used over Edge or 3G service.
