In this post, palandri mentioned Skype running in the background. My question was more about Skype in general: With free calls and text on most plans today, does anyone actually use Skype on their phones? Video calling is nice, but really I can't see keeping even a small credit balance with them for calling landlines. The only reason I use Skype is to (rarely) speak to one of my children that lives out of this country. It is nice to "see" her, even virtually. For that, we both are on wi-fi. She uses her phone, I use the computer because of the larger screen.
