    I'm not familiar with Google Voice but sounds like you've got a good rate to me. Is that a a mobile ap?

    Skype isn't available for the Blackberry yet - it's supposed to be released for the Blackberry in May.

    What's currently available that I'm aware of is IM+ for Skype for the Blackberry from Shape Services. They have international calling plans - you can check their rates depending on your call destinations.

    There's also Packet8 Mobile Talk - It also depends on where you're calling internationally but I think their rates are compatible with what you're using.

    Yeah, I looked into it and saw that Google Voice doesn't apply yet to a number of mobile devices - all in time, I guess.

    Have you used ISkoot? Can you compare it's use to IM+ for Skype? IM+ for Skype uses a call-back feature when you call a Skype number from your mobile phone (BB in this case.) I just wondered if it works about the same.
