Skype and dial-up... work ok?

Folks,

opinions on the useability of skype for "phone calls" when one user is broadband and the other is on dial up.... Is it generally OK?

If the answer is "Yes", then I'm also after recommendations for headsets... budget would be £20.

What about if both users are on dial-up... still work ?

Thanks,

Regards,

It used to work for me a year ago - I don't know about the latest version though.

This is the headset I use - I got it for about £15 if I remember correctly.

I think I'm going to press ahead with this...

I haven't got a headset yet... whilst welcoming what Diodorus Siculus has put, I'm open to other recomendations.

Thanks,

Regards,

In excess of your budget, admittedly, but this is the one I use click here and I strongly recommend that you consider it.

By far the best of the several that I've tried.
