    Skype Mobile Now Available On Verizon


    Here's a nice early morning surprise. It has been teased and hyped quite a bit for the past week or so since the details were officially announced. Verizon has officially launched Skype Mobile.

    With Skype mobile you can:

    • Make and receive unlimited Skype-to-Skype calls and instant messages to anyone on Skype
    • Know when your friends are available to chat and connect in real time while you’re on the go
    • Place international calls using Skype mobile and those calls will never count against your Verizon Wireless plan minutes (Skype mobile credit required)

    The real catch here is that only calls to other Skype users are free and unlimited. But it still gives a great option to getting in contact with someone without using your minutes. Skype will work on the BlackBerry Storm 9530, Storm2 9550, Curve 8330, Curve 8530, 8830 World Edition and Tour 9630 smartphones.

    I'm in now.....So for any others out there, it seemed to be just patience that I needed...I did a reboot, and then just let it sit there and do its thing.

    I did notice however that the send/receive arrow at the top was going psycho the entire time. It may have just needed to get a boat load of data.

    Works outstanding now!!! :147:

    To me from what i am seeing so far this is basically Google voice but using skype it dials a number to skype two numbers together. with skype you get more people you can now call for free. i know i will be using this for sure when talking to people out of the country/over seas. the one thing that sets this appart of skype pc is with this you can not call usa based toll free numbers. if you could i use this more. but it wont let you. so for now ill have to use google voice too.

    Makes me mad. I kept texting that stupid sms all day yesterday at different times, in case it was released at 12 am in a different time zone. I still didn't even get it. As soon as I woke up I said, "I bet it's already on bbos", sure enough it was! Stupid Verizon.

    Downloaded and installed with very little pain. Connectivity and access is relatively fast. Tested contact via Skype connect to friend in Japan and quality of call was fairly good quality. Tested IM capability and delivery was very quick. Upon reply to IM's, no notification of reply was seen or heard. No setup under BerryBuzz was noted in configuration. Incoming calls only reflect Skype Call.

    Yes they certainly have got to do something about that. It should push the contact information from your Skype list, if it's truly a skype to skype call, and if not, it should push caller id info if it is a phone to skype call.

    I mean, there's an option to block a contact with the software, so if it can do that, it should also at least be able to show you who's callling. Go figure.... Hmmmmm....

    They definitely got to do better in that regards.
