    We do all the time. No problems with our strong connection at the Amsterdam Manor.

    Computer to computer = FREE
    Computer to phone = about 3 Cents a minute
    Comuter to 1-800 #s = Free

    Yes. We used Skype video this summer, but you can also open a small cash account and use it to make phone calls, domestic or international. At least that is what the website says. Since we also had a cell phone with a Setar SIM card, we used that for regular calls home.

    we used it a lot this past trip.

    reception was very good.

    saved our lives when we has airline cancellation and we had to rebook.
    i was on hold forever and since it was an 800 number it cost nothing.
    if i was on the aruba cell phone (even thought the number was 800) it would have cost...
    lots. i was on hold with american, on the morning of the 25th for well over an hour.
