Now, I'm not a technically minded sort of person, but I can at least use what's on offer if I'm showed how!

And so I'd like to ask if anyone here knows if it's possible to phone someone using your computer, entirely for free? I heard a rumour that this can be done, but have no idea how to do it or even where to look. I would like to phone the USA and Russia in particular, from Britain.

I would also like to know if it's possible to 'text' someone from the internet [some people call it SMSing] to their mobile phone? Again, I'd like to do this internationally. :thumbup
