    We don't know everything for sure here , but my take is that Skype got upstaged, didn't like it, and made a childish move to try to make fring look bad.

    I cut ties with Skype several weeks ago, after seeing them ignore their customers with no iOS 4 backgrounding update--despite showing us a working demo in early April.

    Google Voice + Gizmo5 works great through fring--and it's free. F*** Skype.

    U can still use fring to fring video calling...but wait , I heard u say on other threads about not getting an iPhone 4....interesting change of heart
    If "u" are talking about me then you must be mistaken, I got my iPhone 4 on launch and was sold the second I saw the new design. Also, my girlfriend has a blackberry so she isn't really capable of fring to fring calling.

    perhaps if skype would get off it's ***** and update their own iPhone app, this wouldn't be an issue
    My thoughts exactly!!!

    Skype and Fring = Fail

    They both have faults, and now their users are ending up losing in the end.

    Skype...Fring... What ever.. They are not in bed with apple like ATT. It would be nice to use skype but it would be even better if I could use AT&T (which most already pay for) to call fringe skype or what ever. Now that would not only be cool but also make me feel like I'm getting my money worth as a customer...

    Um...you can. I'm on the cheapest AT&T voice plan, using my grandfathered unlimited data plan to VoIP all my calls. Working great so far.

    Now if you're on the 2GB limited data plan, that might cause some problems...

    I have unlimited and can't seem to get a mobile to skype number voice call to work. How did you do it?

    Sorry, but I'm not sure what you mean by "mobile to skype number voice call" . . . Since Skype isn't yet iOS 4-friendly, I'd recommend going a different route for VoIP.

    Here's a thread I did on Google Voice/Gizmo5 on iOS 4. There are other options, but that's what I'm doing.

    http://modmyi.com/forums/general-iph...g-minutes.html

    If you still want to use Skype and you're jailbroken, just get Backgrounder and a quality multitasking app in Cydia, and buy a Skype-to-mobile plan + Skype number, and you'll be set.

    The Skype plan + Skype number comes out to about $8/month (until their "calling over 3G" charges kick in...).

    Thanks for the tip but I was meaning a cell to voip (someones skype account) and use FaceTime. This use of FaceTime I'm sure will have to wait until everyone plays nice in the tech world of biz or the JB comes out along with savvy programers or apple writes their code to broadcast video in multiple video formats for all software to understand/play.
