They have the best long-distance rates to phones anywhere in the world, and offer Skype-in phone numbers making local calls possible from your from friends and contacts in other countries.

The best use of a Skype-in number is a static point of contact that will never change. You can be in China and receive calls on your local USA number that auto-forwards to your local Chinese phone at Skype's low long-distance calling rates. Then, when you move to Europe, you can forward to your new phone and your friend never need to learn the new phone number.

Issues

On May 19, 2010, my account locked itself out.

Literally while typing an instant message, Skype logged me out and did not allow me to log back in. I could not reset my password and Skype has no customer support phone number.

That's right, Skype is a telephone company with no telephone support.

To contact Skype, you can only use

Note: they require the last two phone numbers called through Skype! They will not respond if you do not remember who you called. Luckily, I did remember, and 48 hours later my account was re-activated.

Skype lost my trust. I cannot put anything critical on Skype now in case they shut me out again, possibly permanently if I cannot remember the details.

Update 2010-05-23: After signing in, I noticed a strange email address in my account: george.vanous@hugby.sk (not exactly that, but close). It is possible someone in Slovakia compromised my account.
