    Small correction: you don’t have to use a headset with Skype, you can use the built-in microphone and speakers available on most laptops these days. Skype has a very good echo canceller.

    Rebtel has already made it possible to make free international calls from your cellphone long before Skype was put on cellphones. It takes a very superficial search on the internet to know this.
