    If you're talking about Voip....think it'll be a long time before the carriers allow a 3rd party voip services client to exist on the Berry. (they had a hard enough time getting their heads around wifi).
    Voip threatens their bread and butter....going to be a fundamental change in their revenue stream.

    No, GPRS and EDGE are too slow of a connection for skype. You can use webmessenger though http://www.webmessenger.com/products/mimskype.htm heres a link for a free download...thats about as good as it gets for now unless you have a 3G phone.

    Umm..no it's not free. You have to buy skype credits and you use them to call skype buddies. http://forum.skype.com/lofiversion/i...hp/t59482.html you can read about it on this forum.

    True, 3G and Wifi are fast enough for Skype (there's also some changes coming that will make EDGE much faster).
    It's not the technical hurdles that will be the problem though (now, metro-area wifi networks and carriers that emerge to offer services on them...that will prove interesting).

    iSkoot

    I've been using iSkoot for a few weeks now for both voice and chat with no problems. There's no need to buy any Skype credits.
