I.e. landline or mobile phone yes ('Skype Out').
Alledgedly there are some other (free) programs available cheaper in that respect (at least so I am told by friends who use this function, I don't use that myself actually so you' d have to check the rates for yourself to be sure
One of them would be voipcheap
It has several destinations that are marked free, i.e. calling a landline to those countries from certain countries is also free.
I have used both voipcheap and skype only with free international calling, the quality of the line for both was about the same to me.
