I haven't used skype myself much, but my wife's mother uses it extensively, particularly for LD calls, and has a phone number associated with her account. She really likes it and has no issues calling or receiving calls from Cell's or land based lines.

As for SMS, I'm not sure; is email not a viable alternative? (most phones that can do SMS should be able to do email...)

Current Note I is about $550 unlocked at Amazon.
I'd expect the note2 to be around $200 via 3 year contract; Note1 comes in at $99 around here.
