    Smile Skype iSkoot with Worldwide Calls

    Advertisement



    The new iSkoot program is great you use normal cell phone call minutes and just 0.017 cents of dollar a minute to call anywhere in the world. This is great before I would have to call my mom by computer only and at work because here in my house I don't have internet but now with this great Blackberry and Data Plan with iSkoot installed works great I can even call to Japan for sales for my business without being at home.

    Keep up the great work iSkoot. http://www.iskoot.com

    Thanks to all Blackberry users.

    Hi,
    and how much is the data traffic? I think you will need a flatrate, isn't it?

    Don't uncheck the "I would like to recieve...." box. Their website seems to screw up with some domains, like my address @veloceva.com kept erroring out, till I desided to see what would happen if I didn't uncheck the box. You can also register with a yahoo address, I know that works.

    Thanks this looks like a great service. It seems to only make sense to use while you are in the USA. Has anyone found a service that works with skype without using your minutes? A service like fring looks good but not yet available for blackberry. Then you could make calls without paying the roaming charges while travelling overseas

    bingo - was just in the UK on Tmob and had $150 of data/phone charges and i didn't really even use it that much - i thought that data was included international, but alas fine print..

    it would be cool to use skype overseas, but when they kill you on data you are better off paying $.35/international text and skypin from a laptop.

    TMO offers international BB service for emails for $20 / month. You can add it and take it off as needed.

    But can't use it as a voice phone overseas, only data, so will have to get another phone for voice, and bb for only data. Worth it if you have a 2nd phone, a bit of a hassle in the mix though.
