I use Skype to chat with my BFF in New Mexico (I live in AL). My son also asks to talk to his Gigi frequently, and she lives up near Chattanooga. Skype has really helped us to stay connected and it's so nice to see their smiling faces while we chat!

My boyfriend and I use Skype to stay in touch. We also use Skype when we play Titanfall on the PC because game chat does not work very well and speakerphone for three hours drains the cell battery.

My parents are moving from 30 minutes away to out of state, so we plan to use Skype to keep in touch. I have never used Skype before, but I'm really excited to try it!

A lot of places have WiFi now. It would be nice if it was everywhere. I'm on a limited monthly plan, so I make calls through WiFi whenever I can. I haven't tried Skype, but I know a lot of people are on there so it was time I signed up for it.

I've not used it yet but have heard great things about it.

Since I just signed up for Skype I haven't saved any money on calls. I'll have to look into how to use it.
Thanks for the contest.

I use Skype to save money on calls by using it instead of making long distance phone calls.
