My cell reception sucks in my house and its my only phone. I use Skype all the time and it is extreeeeeemely cheap to make non-computer-to-computer calls. I talk to my buddy in Alaska on it using the webcam mic. Crank up the input and the speakers and I could talk to him from my driveway right through the whole house.
The only variables are how good your ISP is and how good the mic system on your headset is. My $30 Altec Lansing headset isn't so great.
