US local calls prices (Skypein related)



i’m planning to get a Skypein number in the USA (uncle family is going vacation to usa) so that they can call us at a local call price (i found that skypeIn has numbers in the same city.

but how much does local prices in the USA cost?
which is the default phone company? AT&T? MCI? i don’t know anything about communications in the USA.

second, how is skypein quality? good enough?
hope someone can help me.


each region has certian phone companies…but with skypein…there should be a default 1-800 number they can call…to make sure they are on the right provider
