*Since I first posted this I've tried out Skype. I had installed Skype before but never really did anything with it mainly because none of my friends ever used it. I've download it for Mac OS X and I can say that it worked perfectly.
However, I will admit that I am a SkypeOut n00b so it took me one minute to figure out to put a "+" before the number and it took me about 10 minutes (yeah, i know) to figure out to add the "1" as well. So therefore, if anyone else is in the same boat as me then make sure your numbers go like this "+1XXXXXXX" (X = a number)."
