Cordless Skype phones are just what you need to make cheap and free calls to your friends and family through your broadband connection. Skype is a software application that is either downloaded onto your computer or in some cases already loaded on to phones and mobiles. When making calls to other Skype users within the service, the calls are free, but making calls to users who are not on the Skype service incurs a charge but this is less than would be paid for a traditional landline call. These call are called SkypeOut calls and are paid with calling credit which is counted in minutes.
There is a good selection of cordless Skype phones on the market today, and many businesses have started to use them in the business environment. This has happened because the cost of using Skype and VoIP services has become much more favorable than using standard telephone networks due to the savings in costs and charges.
The use of a cordless Skype phone is very similar to a normal telephone but give you the freedom to be able to wander away from the base station. As long as you are within range you can carry on with the conversation. This range increases if used outdoors. When the phone is sat in the base station, the handset is recharged. Most of the cordless Skype phones have a high quality speakerphone, which can be used for conference calls.
