    Even though the Droid can't be used overseas would it work with Skype? My neighbor just took a job that has him going to europe a few times a year and I told him and his wife about how Skype is available through Verizon that way he wouldn't be paying for an international plan. I wasn't for sure if Droid would work on Skype overseas and hoping it will that way I can talk him away from a blackberry

    That's a no. Skype has to send data over the Verizon network to work on the Droid. They even disabled wifi support for the application.

    If he has unlock BB Storm 1/2 he can have Skype installed, and while over there just use SIM card in that BB and buy minutes (which comes with a SIM) while over there use Skype to call his wife.
