Skype is a free communication software tool available from Skype.com. It allows users to communicate over the Internet using video, audio or text. In addition, there are premium services available, such as the ability to call landlines and cell phones using your Skype account. If you have paid for a phone number through Skype, others will be able to see your number when you call them using your account. However, you can hide your number, thereby preventing it from being picked up by Caller ID.
