Can anyone recommend a cheap but Vista compatible skype phone.Daughter has new laptop with Vista basic installed. No Bt line in her room hence the need for skype. thanks

The cheapest way is for your daughter to use PC Microphone and speakers. Even better a cheap PC headset - combined headphones and mic. I use a headset with great results - on Skype most days.

PS - I am assuming she is on wireless broadband.

No she's on a wired connection at present.

OK - even better.

Yes definitely, the first link, Headset. Bluetooth may be convenient, but in my experience not always reliable.

Thanks probably get her the headset. Presume all she has to do is download the skype software and plug in the headset and thats it or have I missed somthing.

Yes that is all she needs to do - it is that simple.
If she has a webcam, she could also use video during the chat(s).
