I'm thinking of joining the Three network on PAYG to take advantage of the free Skype calls and other benefits that seem to make it the best PAYG company. I will have to buy a handset for me and my girlfriend but want to know how it works first.
Is Skype to Skype on a mobile exactly the same as if you were phoning that person over the normal network? Is it always on, running in the background and ready to receive calls unlike on PC where you actually have to go into the program and make sure you both have it switched on first?
Can you recommend any of the handsets? How good are the cheap ones at around £40? Is it better to upgrade to one of the Sony handsets?
Thanks for any help.
