- File transfer

- Video calling
- Video conferences
While the basic features are available for free, others require payment. Free features offered by Skype are: file transfer, screen sharing, instant messaging and video calling. You can also connect your Skype account with your Facebook account and see your friends latest news directly into Skype.
Skype claims they are offering the lowest rates on the market for international calling and SMS and also the best online services.
Besides Skype, there are other internet phone software too such as: Google voice, and Yahoo voice.
Internet phone software usually come in multiple versions, for PCs and mobile phones. The great think about using such a software on your mobile device is that you communicate through WIFI or direct internet services and the rates for calling may be lower than rates for directly calling.
