...but Skype doesn't supply Canadian numbers at this time, while we have one for the MagicJack. Agree that the sound quality can vary, but it's generally very good; if it's really rocky, just calling again usually gets you a better connection. We buy $14 blocks of Skype time for landline and cell outgoing calls - find that worked well for us, but we'll now use the MagicJack for those since it's free. Will check out the $30.00 a year Skype package - that'd be excellent if it is available here. Thanks for the info...

I have Skype on all of my computers and my iPad, and pay the $30.00 a year fee to be able to call cell phones and land lines. Call quality is always good.
If you have a computer that is on all of the time you can get an incomeing phone number on skype for $60.00 a year.
That's $90.00 a year for unlimited call in and out, to and from any phone. with your own Skype phone number.
