    Yeah, but that doesn't seem to have VoIP feature. Or does it exist that I haven't discovered how to use????

    I don't think it's false advertising per se. If it was, every software company I've ever known would be guilty and subject to FTC fines and sanctions. Software is tricky, and timetables change. Would it be good to have open communication? Absolutely. But would I rather have the engineers working on the software rather than issuing bulletins all the time? Absolutely. Also, every article I read said sometime in May, not necessarily May 1st.

    Okay maybe false advertising was the incorrect verbage, but I get very anxious when they say a time frame and I go check and still nothing. My apologizes to Skype...! My Bad!

    From what Ive read in threads here on the stack, Blackberry it seems will not be getting the true VOIP in this app. Essentially it will dial in a number and use cell minutes with the benefits of Skype kicking in from there. There is no wifi version other then for iphone at this time that I am aware of... lets keep hoping....
