So, VoIP anyone?

I'm just trying out Skype for the first time, I'm wondering if anyone's had much experience with it. Basically I'm just using a cell phone now, but if I ever want to do long distance calling (overseas at least!) I have to turn elsewhere, so I thought I'd give it a try. I tested it out on my mom earlier today, and the voice quality is actually pretty good.

I noticed a couple things - you really can't both talk at the same time (it doesn't seem to be able to transmit information both ways simultaneously). But then, I've noticed the same thing to a lesser extent with cell phones, and Skype's sound quality and "reception" might actually be better than for a cell.

But it did completely cut out on me at one point - I could still hear my mom, but she couldn't hear anything I said. She was using a regular phone, not the computer, and for all I know it could have been my microphone. I didn't exactly fork out big bucks, but I only bought it yesterday, so it'd better damn well not be broken *l*

I'm just curious to know if anyone else had recommendations or whatever...
