Oh didn't notice this thread.

Well everyone I know who has Skype lives in London and has an 0207 number.

You can't tell it apart from any other number. Nothing specific to Skype. A number is a number.

Still got a usb usrobotics one in a box somewhere. Never used it.

Calls is a good idea. Most people I wanted to speak to had pcs and gaming headset - so it stayed in the box.
