Just the same as Skype PC to PC, except yor cousin picks it up on her 3 network phone. Of course for it to work you boyh must be running Skype and logged on.

Yes, she can ring to your desktop for free (with 3G if that's the deal) but I'm not sure you can call her 3G phone for free. I think you'd have to pay the Skype Out charge, which is very low. My reasoning is that it's not your free call deal with 3G but hers.

To call her phone you just click on 'Call Phones' on Skype and a keyboard will appear.

I tried this yesterday with a friend, who had got one of these phones. If you are both signed into skype then the call is free. The only problem is that there is no video but the call does get dropped if you are doing anything else on the phone(i.e checking emails, using the internet, etc)

Yes thanks for all your help...ive tried this with another friend, as i havent been able to get hold of my cousin yet, and the call is FREE BOTH WAYS!! I have about £17.60 of credit on my skype account, and i rang a friend on their iphone, as theyve got skype on it, and it woz a free call, as my credit did not change, i think as more people get onto this it will become huge!! thanks for all the help!!
