I hope sprint follows suit -
Initially, Skype mobile will be available on millions of best-selling Verizon Wireless 3G smartphones with data plans, including:
I guess I wouldn't need nearly as many minutes as most of my key clients and contractors use skype.
I'm already using skype with Sprint, what the new thing they did? So now you can automatically start Skype for all of your phone calls? meaning enable that?
I agree this is already the case with using 3G on Sprint using Skype's version released last summer. Unlike the iPhone version, the Windows Mobile version supports 3G calling. Unless Sprint is disabling the program via filtering IP address access. I haven't tried it lately.
Skype is changing a lot of things. As I understand, if you installed Skype on your phone earlier, it will still work. You just cannot download Skype mobile anymore except on Verizon BB's and Androids. It is no longer offered for any WinMo phones at all. No word on Win 7.
I had it on some WinMo 6.1 phone and it was ok.
Skype is very useful for international calls. If you have it on your phone and can get wifi when out of the US you can call normal phones for about 2.1 cents/minute. Compare that to any carrier's international roaming.
