Anyone else used skype yet?
Ive been using skype ever since it aloud call's over 3g. I can confirm that it does not use any minutes. Although to get unlimited with skype its like 7 bucks a month which paired with the $25 dollar vm plan is outstanding. Just figured I would let you all know.

I just installed it today, on my phone and pc. I used Skype when it first came out years ago, but haven't used it in the past 5 years. Looking forward to discovering what's new.
I'm hoping I can create some sort of periscope to attach to the rear camera and use it for Skype video calls. My first attempt is using a dollar-store toy periscope, if it works, I'll check into better optics and post the details.

To call other people that have skype no you dont need a number. Nor do you need a number to call other phones just to receive skype calls. You will need minutes to call out to other phones.

2.99/mo unlimited USA. Called my friend this morning and talked for 20 minutes. Quality is good over the 3g network. Only thing is there is a more noticeable delay then a normal call.
Also, the Skype app, when im not using it, i turn off as it will drain your battery down fairly fast.
28/Mo unlimited everything not too bad huh?

It's noticeably better over wifi but I was able to make it through a 20+ minute conversation on 3g and it wasn't too bad. A little popping in the audio but it was rare. I was by a window though. I put 10 dollars on it months ago to user with an ipod and i still have 5 something left.
