    I cannot see any value to using Skype if you can't use it on 3G or wifi... If it is using your minutes, what's the point?

    I'm confused. The post by Brett Wyman says the same things as
    Skype App on Verizon Uses Minutes not Wi-Fi/3G, Exclusive Deal - WIRELESS AND MOBILE NEWS
    that it will not work with 3g and it WILL use minutes.

    BUT on skypes website
    Skype Mobile
    It says that:

    Skype usage won’t be charged against customers’ monthly Verizon Wireless data plans or minute allowances.

    Who do we trust?

    If you click the link on where I got my information from then you can ask if you can trust them. Personally, I've learned to not believe anything Verizon says. When it comes to them its a "i'll believe it when I see it" type of deal.

    That's true, I would trust DSLreports over Verizon. But it just seems too blatant to be a lie. :-/

    I do not see how this could help verizon. Sure, people who want Skype will flock to the stores, but once they are told they have to use their own minutes for skype, I don't think they will be interested anymore. And what's the point of using skype if you can't use it on wifi? I just don't get it verizon...

    ok, so...I am confused. By using your minutes, does that mean voice minutes? So this Skype isn't going to be like every other app that uses data plan? Sorry, but I'm new to smartphones 3G/wifi talk when it comes to cell phones.

    The DSLreports article made it sound like it uses minutes, but not necessarily minute for minute.

    If it did use verizon minutes, the only purpose would be for international calls.
