Readers who purchased either the Netgear or Belkin Skype phones should remember that free U.S. and Canada Skypeout calling is only good 'til the end of the year. Starting January '07, you'll have to pay $29.95 for unlimited yearly calling. Pretty cheap, if you compare that your landline or cellphone bill.
Plus, if you order before January 31, 2007, you'll even get a discounted price of $14.95. Heck, even if you're only slightly thinking about buying a Skype phone, you can save $15 by ordering at the discounted rate now and make up your mind later. As always, Skype to Skype calling will still be free.
