    Going on Vacation and considering a Droid

    Next week I will be heading to Belgium for 5 days, I am currently with AT&T and considering switching to a Droid. If I switch over to the droid I am interested in knowing if I can use VOIP's yet while on wifi over there? I would also consider the Android Eris, but seems like that is already way behind the times with all these new Android devices coming out. Anyone think I should go with an Iphone?

    Verizon to allow unlimited Skype calling over 3G starting next month -- Engadget

    That might be interesting to you. (Kinda busy or else I'd give you a better answer but I hope this helps)

    You'll be able to use VOIP on wifi wherever you go. I can't recommend an app but you'll definitely have the capability.

    Try Nimbuzz in the market. Once you install it, create a Nimbuzz account. Then, you also need a Skype account. Login your Skype account in Nimbuzz and turn on your wi-fi. If you call someone with another Skype account, it's free. If you want to call a regular phone number, buy some Skype credit to make calls.

    I can look this up, but can I call people on a computer for free, or do I need the skype credits?

    If you are calling people on their computer using Skype, then you don't need the Skype credit. Also, I'm not even sure you can use the Skype on Nimbuzz for SkypeOut calls. So yeah, if you are going to use Skype to call others using Skype in their computers, then it's free.

    Do you have a Google voice account? If so, then your problem is solved.

    No I am currently still on AT&T. I just heard that my airplane that I will be flying on has free wifi, so this is another reason why I would like to steup my phone search. Almost makes me wanna get the Iphone simply because it works everywhere (meaning in other countries with no worry). 8 hours in a plane with internet capability would be nice to pass some time.
