    Not sure what Iskoot is? Is that a messenger type of application? Can you browse the internet and do other data features?

    I didn't have any contacts on mine either. I ended up deleting it.

    Re: iskoot problem

    I use skype a lot from my computer. It will be really cool for me if can access it from my phone. I don't have to stick to my comp.

    I checked the iskoot forums for help, they say just try calling them even if they appear offline sometime the network is down or something, dint work.

    I know Skype went down yesterday, may still be having some glitches, I'd say see how things go over the next few days.

    maybe this is a dumb question but im new to skype. Will you get any extra charges to your phone bill if you "call" through iskoot to someone using skype?

    I have unlimited data/sms and just wondering if theres anything i should worry about

    Installed iSkoot yesterday. All free as far as I can tell.

    At first had a problem with the APN setting. Looked up help topics on iSkoot, tried changing the TCP APN settings and viola it works. Voice quality on calls is decent but not great. Chat works great.

    If you use regular fat client Skype user you might enjoy having a Skype type client on your BB. Some functionality is missing like file transfers.

    IM+ from Shape Services is another option but not free. Thumbs up to iSkoot.
