Skype Unlimited for North America — free SkypeOut calls for 2007 for $14.95
You’ve been asking what’s our plan for 2007 with the free calls in North America. We’ve been saying we’ll announce it before the end of this year. And today is the day.
Today, we [announced](http://about.skype.com/2006/12/skype_announces_new_skype_unli.html) Skype Unlimited. There’s bad news and good news.
The bad news is that you’ll have to pay a bit.
The good news is that it’s a simple one-time purchase and there are no catches. You’ll get free calls for a year for an incredible price, plus other goodies like coupons for discounts on top-notch Skype hardware from our selected partners.
How it works:
* you go to [Your Account](http://www.skype.com/go/myaccount). If you’re eligible for the Unlimited plan, you’ll automatically see the prompt to buy it.
* the price is $14.95 if you buy before end of January 2007. From February, the price will be $29.95.
* if you buy before end of 2006, you get free unlimited calls until the end of 2007. If you buy in 2007, you get free unlimited calls for 12 months after your purchase.
* the calls continue to be totally free until the end of 2006 as we’ve previously said, no change in that. But there’s no risk in stocking up for 2007 so that you wouldn’t forget it in the Christmas and New Year holiday craze — if you go and buy the plan for $15 right away, you’re good to go in the new year.
* you’ll get the partner coupons delivered in the e-mail that we send you after the purchase.
* the details are mostly the same as with this year’s free calls — for example, it works within the US and Canada for both landline and mobile calls.
