Work from Home with Skype
Whether you plan to work from home, have a home based job or run a business at home, when it comes to phone bills, don't let them cost the earth! Try making calls through your computer with Skype!
Make Skype calls without a computer
You don’t always need to be connected to your computer to use Skype. Cordless handsets simply plug into your computer’s USB port and allow you to make Skype calls from anywhere in your house or office.
Skype Certified™ cordless handsets
Make Skype your own
Change the way you look to the rest of the world by adding a personalised avatar that looks just like you. You could also add a new ringtone or play games with your friends. You’ll need to buy a little Skype Credit to pay for items. It is also possible to make Skype better by being able to use screen sharing tools for business meetings so you can present easier and more efficiently.
Staying safe online is important.
You can accept or deny any request from other Skype users asking you to join their contact list.
Open Skype and click the Tools > Options > Privacy, and set your preferences for receiving communications.
Handy tip: Your online status is set automatically. To change it yourself, click the green tick symbol at the bottom of the Skype window.
