    Could it be a conspiracy to sell more IPhones? Or just a belief that since Blackberry's are used by more companies they can afford to pay the extra for the calls?

    Who knows? Admittedly, it does make you wonder what's the reasoning though, doesn't it?

    I think you're right, Don. Skype CANNOT be looked on favorably by the carriers! This will be one to watch in the near term.

    According to the latest release SKYPE on the Iphone will work on WIFI, 3G, Edge, GPS whichever is available. Which makes it a truly useful application, and it's free. The carriers really won't like this!

    For calls it is wifi only, but you can use the skype IM chat and edit profile, contacts, etc. over 3g edge.....

    This is what's so difficult to understand as to why they didn't say they plan to make that available in the May release to the BB's that have wi-fi. ?????

    I think my age is showing, I'll just go away in a corner now and keep quiet

    Seriously though it is very depressing for the blackberry to not have the full capability with SKYPE. Maybe things will change by May
