Pros nice calls
Cons they simply steal your money
Summary We have a business account and skype suspended 3 accounts including all balance 3 months ago after we hired a girl working from a new location. After 10 chats and numerous emails, the accounts are still suspended and 100$ is gone. In the emails Skype gave me 5 different reasons, including s 'bug', but every emails gives a new reason. It is not enough money to go to court, so Skype simply steals our money as a business model. DO NOT USE SKYPE!!!
ps. Their customer service are Kafka loving zombies who dont care. In the chat, each answer takes 3-5 minutes....
Pros The free service is free
Cons Having made 2 or 3 free calls over 5 years and used IM once in a while, when I tried to buy a subscription I found my account was suspended. No notice ever received and once discovered, Skype refused to offer any info on alleged fraud.
Summary And the customer service rep said I was a valued customer and thanked me for the opportunity to serve me today.
Pros Interface ??
Cons Everything else
Summary Voice quality is so low these days that it makes it practically useless.
"Amazing product"on by DougG
Pros excellent sound quality
Cons occasional video lag
Summary I tried this last evening for the first time with a friend in Germany. I am in New England. The sound quality was excellent, far better than similar products I have used in the past. No echo, full spectral sound. Then, the friend turned on their webcam and it was like having him here in our house! There were occasional lip sync and video breakup issues, but those are due to the line connection, not the software. I'm going out today to buy a webcam so that we can do this more often!
Pros convenient. Free. Good voice quality.
Cons Horrible customer service!
