But what about people that don't have a Skype account or maybe an elderly relative that doesn't use a computer?
Skype has a great option for this too that will save you money and make it as easy as making a phone call for people to reach you because that's all they are doing!
I'm referring to Skype Phone Numbers or their "premium plan"
With this plan you are assigned an actual phone number in your area that you can make AND receive unlimited calls to or from. You can make/receive calls from your computer or from your Smartphone or Tablet with the free app that is available. Then, just give out your Skype number to family, friends, business associates etc. and they can get hold of you just by dialing the number on any phone they have. One note, you do need to be on Wi-Fi or have a good 4G signal on your Smartphone. If you are looking for a great home phone alternative to the phone company plans, The Skype Premium plan may be a good option! They also have handsets available so it feels and operates like a traditional phone.
Use Skype in conjunction with an affordable prepaid plan and you'll be saving some serious money!
