Anyone Still Use Skype?

    Whenever I get on skype it seems like nobody is ever on... Even just as an instant chat. Do you use skype? Should I switch to a different service, because I'm not even aware of one that competes? skype: hostwinds.rodneyc

    Seeing as how Microsoft is killing MS Messenger, and even maybe X-Box Live Chat, with Skype, there'll be a lot more people using it in the days ahead.

    I do know that Skype takes a long time to show which contacts are online, I've seen it take 1-2 minutes until online users showed up. However yes I personally still use Skype and I don't think the platform is going anywhere anytime soon, especially due to its cross compatibility on mobile devices and such things.

    Yes I do. I login everyday in mine. I think it's a very handy tool because a lot of DP users use it and it helps a lot in doing business.

    I doubt I'll stop using it anytime soon unless they start charging you. But I doubt they would because they probably make enough profit from the calls people make.

    I found skype is the best as compare to other IMS.
    it has easy edit option in written chat, comparitively better speach, moreover two-three skype accounts can online and chat at a time on a single computer.

    You know Skype is much more corporate compared to yahoo messenger. I am using skype since it consumes a little bandwidth and not too much ads, no spam users just like Yahoo.
