Re: Does This Mean....
said by djhexer:ORRR, if your buddy in Japan has Skype, you only get charged minutes. And it's not over 3g so the quality isn't crap. It's not a bad deal. Not a great one either tho.
If you have Skype Out and call overseas you get charged VZW's Intl rates???
If so thats crap why even have skype??
If you have skype out you call overseas you get charged the Intl rates from skype and minutes get taken out from VZW minutes?? If so then who cares I rather pay skype's Intl rates than a cell providers Intl rate.
Besides who has skype out?? I have Google Voice to call japan it's the same rate as Skype

Re: Can You say "Magic Jack"?
said by n2jtx:But Magicjack is used on a PC that has to be on, not a cell phone.
I knew you could! If Skype chooses to cripple their product, there are alternatives.

Have you been touched by his noodly appendage? »www.venganza.org
"Exclusive"? This is like giving you an exclusive agreement to be the only one to sell the product at 1234 Main Street. You can easily get a circuit switched connection to Skype through iSkoot, Shape Services, etc.
You will pay Skype's cheaper international rates, but they are not that cheap (particularly after they added a connection fee). What you might be able to save money on is incoming calls. To forward Skype to a mobile phone, you need to have a monthly plan with Skype or it is a real bad deal.
I'm guessing that fee is waived.
