With the facility to tag a phone number to your Skype account, there's no reason why you couldn't use the system instead of your regular phone. Anyone with a fairly fast broadband connection will have more than enough bandwidth to handle high-quality audio conversations. The snag is, whereas your regular phone line can be set up to answer and record messages if you're away from your desk or on the phone, your Skype phone might not be set up to accept messages.
PrettyMay for Skype 2.5 is a plugin for Skype users that enables you to accept and manage incoming messages. If you're away from your computer, you can alert your mobile phone when you have a message and even call in to hear your messages. The recent PrettyMay for Skype 2.5 update has seen a user-interface update amongst other new features.
