to use skype you have to pay 35 pounds a year to buy a online number i thought i could use wi fi to phone a contact in my iphone adress book but no way you have to pay plus you have to buy minuted too why would i do that my iphone is on a contract with inclusive minutes anyway

Just needs to let you check your voicemail too. Since you can't receive calls when app. is closed, It would be nice to see who called you while you are away from your actual phone/skype on computer.

For jailbroken iPhone, go to Cydia to install all available updates, it should fix your crash and sleep problem :)

I did a skype_out call while on 3G. I thought that was not supported? I'm using the 3.0 beta firmware.

I got a warning to update to 2.2 on a 2.1JB 3G. I have been able to log in but no luck making calls yet. Whole phone freezes up having to resort to the 2 button reset. Not a good start for such a long awaited app but I'm sure they'll sort it out. Just happy to finally have skype.

Skype is available in App Store, so you can download from there, or App Store in the iPhone. I installed Skype this morning and I'm in Ontario.

Haas said this is because of patent-licence restrictions but would not elaborate except to specify that it is a patent issue related to Skype, not Apple
