They wouldn't have any way of knowing you're on 3G unless they tracked your iPhone's IP address and knew which blocks AT&T assign for their data/Internet. Otherwise, it's just an inbound (addressable) Skype service request.

Thanks. Thats explains a lot. So if i stay away frm de update i don't hav to worry 4 de time being.

Actually, I was only answering in terms of folks using the iPhone in the USA. After second thought, it would be nearly impossible for Skype to do anything on their end to try to detect if it were being used over 3G except a speed test of some sort. Short of that or disabling the earlier version, they really can't do anything...

Skype quality is spotty enough with wifi. Why would anyone torture themselves using 3G and pay extra on top of that? After using Skype for almost five years, the quality has gotten worst since they started charging fees.

That's LOW! Very LOW!

This is already possible... on a jailbroken handset anyway... 1. go to cydia and add, http://cydia.xsellize.com to your sources 2. search the source for a app called My3G 3. in the app, choose Skype, and this will let you make calls on skype over 3G.

That's cool. Keep the old version, use 3G Unrestrictor and the greedy Skype fags can suck a fat one.

...which, by the way, I'm doing right now and it works fine...

This is pure greed at it's worst. Very disappointed at Skype to go this way.

You've got that right! Greeeeedyyyyyy! I guess this is the money used to give the skype executives that bonus at the end of the year. Bastards. Oh well, all of us can just use 3gUnrestrictor anyway =)
