    The way Edge works would mean that if you tried it you would block all the channels so no one else would be able to make calls on your cell - not a good idea!

    That message has been there for a long time. It just means it's not supported, not that it doesn't work.

    I have not tried it but many people have reported that it works fine despite that message. Are you saying it doesn't?

    They're being greedy because nothing changes on their part, there are no extra costs for them. They're just starting to charge for the calls simply because they can.

    For users, it's moving the costs from one company to another (ATT -> Skype). No wonder ATT was against this.
    Plenty of companies start things out for free and charge for them later. Something doesn't have to cost me MORE money all of the sudden for me to want to be compensated for it... Name another company that is offering this service. There isn't one. Again, I fall back to wanting money for a service you provide shouldn't be called greedy, especially not when the price is so inexpensive.

    I use Skype over Wifi at home because I can't get an AT&T signal in the house. I hope there's an option to keep the Skype w/o 3G support and not pay the extra fee; I'm paying $30.00US per year for SkypeOut now and really don't want to pay an extra monthly charge for 3G if I'm not going to use it.

    I dont understand why making this a big NEWS. No bluetooth support and calls are very very expensive, maybe free to some countries but the countries are most to be called are expensive. other voip sites offer 100 times better. Also truephone is the same shi t too expensive

    Skype saved me a TON of money while in Africa. I don't see how you think it is expensive. I paid .02 cents a minute instead of $2.75 a minute.

    It's not working on my 3GS after updating. I've tried adding/removing it from 3G Unrestrictor, but it just hangs on the "Signing in..." screen. I also tried uninstalling it and reinstalling the app and it let me in when I did my first login, but then the same thing happened when I tried to open it again. Any ideas?

    I have the same issue with Skype 2.0 and 3G-Unrestrictor on a 3GS jailbroken phone.. Any help is appreciated.

    Upgrades / improvements include:
    - Call using your 3G connection. Skype-to-Skype calls on 3G are free until the end of 2010, after which there will be a small monthly fee (operator charges for data will still apply).
    - Near CD-quality sound for Skype-to-Skype calls using wideband a

    I just bought subscription to Skype and it is 2.99 unlimited calling out only! If you want a phone number it's 12.09 for 3 months which comes to $7.02 (dollars) a month!

    Do not upgrade.... It disables your use of the program if you have a jailbroken device.... Trust me i just downgraded back to the old skype before they purposely broke the script

    Does calling not work? Because I can run the app and log in just fine.

    I have 3G Unrestrictor running on a jailbroken iPhone 3.13 and the new Skype app ran the first time but thereafter gets stuck on the "logging in" screen.

    Have you tried removing the app and then reinstalling it? I have 3G Unrestrictor as well and it seems to work fine for me.

    Yup, I uninstalled the old app, rebooted and reinstalled the new version (tried it several times) - no go. Went back to Skype 1.3.1 and it works great!
